  NASA Is Partnering With Orlando, FL on eVTOLs                                                                                      Source:  Lillium Preparations Underway to Welcome Urban Air Mobility Vehicles NASA is partnering with the city of Orlando, Florida to welcome, develop facilities and infrastructure and establish a regulatory environment to accommodate flying taxis and flying cars.  The city of Orlando's first vertiport for vertical takeoffs and landings of eventual fleets of flying taxis will be built by Lillium, the German based leading developer of electric vertical take-off and landing flying taxis (eVTOLS).  The first vertiport in the US is planned for the Lake Nona area of Orlando.  The vertiport is expected to cost $25 million with two landing pads and the capacity to charge 8 vehicles simultaneously.  Many more vertiports in Florida are planned from Miami to Palm Beach and beyond.  It's the beginning of a revolutionary new way to travel within cities and ci

Rolls-Royce All Electric Plane Flight

More Intensive Testing For Spirit of Innovation UK based Rolls-Royce is very pleased with the electric plane's performance and is putting it through very intensive f

 Airbus'   Climate Neutral, Zero Emissions Flying                                                       Source:  Airbus ZEROe France-based Airbus is a firm believer that the future of flying is zero emission aircraft, powered by hydrogen.  The global aviation and aerospace company is working on three concepts for the world's first zero emissions commercial aircraft that Airbus wants to put service by 2035.  The concepts represent different technological and aerodynamic design approaches to zero emissions flight.  Each concept relies upon hydrogen as the primary power source.  The three concepts are codenamed ZEROe. Carbon Neutral Flying Airbus says that it is committed to a future of zero emissions flights through the use of hydrogen as the power source. The three ZEROe concepts are designed to be the world's first climate neutral, zero emissions commercial aircraft for long distance and short haul transportation.  The major goal is to end the commercial aviation industry&#
