Lot of things have been happening with electric vehicles (EV’s), but now electric aircraft (EA) are on the rise too. So, on March 12, 2019 things took a big step forward. Airbus, got everyone’s attention with their Urban Air Mobility (UAM) project in Ingolstadt, Germany, the home of Audi. There they presented the firm’s air taxi CityAirbus, an electric aircraft with eight rotors that takes off and lands vertically. It is yet to take to the skies on its maiden flight, but that shouldn’t be too far away.
