This is perhaps one of the most practical flying taxi designs I have ever seen. Unveiled at the Consumer Electric Show (CES) 2018 edition, the Bell Air flying Taxi concept from Bell Helicopters aims to demonstrate the company's vision for on-demand air taxi service and how it would shape the urban life and society in future.
This is a very wild imagination and its very intuitive all the same. With a conventional car-like interior seating a maximum of four passengers to a seemingly luxurious and well-crafted cabin and in and out.
It's also important to mention the aerodynamic profile as one of a king. The aircraft is so sleek, spacious and commands satisfying wide appeal. It's Bell Helicopter's answer to an alternate means of transport to evade the traffic congestion and pollution associated with road mobility.
According to the company, there is a control center in the cabin which enables users do things like catch up on the news, hold conference calls and share documents.
President and CEO Mitch Synder noted that "Bell Helicopter is innovating at the limits of vertical flight and challenging the traditional notion of aviation to solve real-world problems." "The future of urban air taxi is closer than many people realize. We believe in the positive impact our design will have on addressing transportation concerns in cities worldwide."
