It just raised $66 million in a Series C funding round to build the SD-5's as well as its cargo drones. New Technologies & A Bird-Like Design The SD-05 will be piloted by a human who will get lots of assistance from a computer-controlled flight system.  The

  Mad Bat eVTOL                                        Source:  Razvan Sabie Highly Advanced Aviation Technology Mad Bat is one of the world's most unusual and unique electric flying machines.  The Mad Bat eVTOL is an all-electric, vertical takeoff and landing design prototype created by famous Rumanian aviation designer Razvan Sabie.  Sabie, a few years ago, unveiled his omnidirectional, potentially supersonic and incredibly agile UFO-like flying machine, the ADIFO flying disc. It received global press coverage. He has now created an eVTOL that incorporates and builds on many of the ADIFO capabilities in order to deliver exceptionally fast and easy transitions from vertical to horizontal flight.  Sabie also says this new design creation is scalable across aircraft genre from small drones, personal flying machines, multi-passenger air taxis and even a unique approach to flying cars. In fact, Sabie says you'll be able to drive your car into it and fly around, which is a new take

Chicago Puts AirTaxis into Acceleration

Why the Simulations? Eve air taxis will be ready to go into fully operational service by 2026, pending regulatory clearance by the FAA and other aviation authorities.  The Chicago simulations are prov

For example, it can be equipped with a conference table for businesspeople to work on.  Or it can be outfitted as an entertainment center on wheels with augmented reality.  And, for those just off a red-eye flight, it offers dynamic, restful lighting and reconfigurable seats that can help induce a snooze.  The cabin is bubble-like glass designed to promote autonomous relaxation as you're driven along the road.  With its gullwing doors for easy entrance and ex
