Uber and NASA to launch flying taxi service by 2020

Uber has partnered with NASA to develop an on-demand electric aircraft taxi service, which is scheduled to begin flights in Los Angeles in three years time.
Speaking at the Web Summit in Lisbon yesterday, Uber’s head of product Jeff Holden announced that the taxi app had signed a contract with NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) to develop low-flying aircrafts for urban environments. The partnership, signed under NASA’s Space Act Agreement, will enable Uber to develop an on-demand, app-based flying taxi service – named UberAIR.
