The first flying taxi might take flight in the UK by 2026 and become a regular sight in our skies two years later, if a government announcement goes as planned.

Drones and other flying vehicles will become increasingly autonomous, according to the Future of Flight action plan, which was created in collaboration with the aerospace sector.

According to this prediction, the first pilotless flying taxi will fly in 2030.

However, experts advise overcoming obstacles like infrastructure and public approval initially.

Although there are many variations, the majority of flying taxis resemble futuristic helicopters and have a maximum capacity of five passengers.

They belong to a class of automobiles known as “eVTOLs,” or electric vertical take-off and landing airplanes.

Although the technology to operate them already exists, it is most likely that the aircraft will begin service as an exclusive means of transportation, taking the place of the pricy helicopter trips.

Additionally, the Department of Transportation intends to permit drones to fly above their line of sight, which prevents the operator from seeing the aircraft while it is in the air.

Unmanned drones can be used for a variety of tasks, such as delivering mail in remote locations, searching for fugitive criminals, and moving medical supplies.

Although their application is still in its infancy, by 2027, the plan anticipates that drone deliveries will become standard.

Infrastructure and public opinion are the main barriers to the implementation of flying taxis, according to Craig Roberts, head of drones at PwC.

He co-wrote a report on the subject last year on the technology’s potential, working with the government.
