Bladeless Air Taxi Will Carry Passengers at 200 MPH

It’s kind of hard to predict where exactly the future of transportation is going to take us. If we took one look at something like the Jetsons cartoon from the 60s, we would’ve thought that by this point in time, we would’ve been flying around in hover cars. While many of the futuristic tech items from the show did come true, flying cars is something that we’re still working on. Luckily we still have some time left as the show is set in 2062.

The reality of the matter is that not many folks would’ve predicted that electric vehicles would be the biggest hot new trend in automobiles in 2021 and beyond. With that, we would probably say that the next couple of steps are going to be just as unpredictable and it’s exciting to think about how we might be traveling another 30 or 40 years in the future.

Just because the hovercar hasn’t exactly made its way into the mainstream yet isn’t to say we should give up hope. It does seem as if a great number of manufacturers are on the trail of making hovering personal transportation. The only issue seems to be making these things reliable, safe, and able to be mass-produced at a reasonable price point.

Jetoptera, one of the manufacturers that is attempting to do this has envisioned a blade list VTOL vehicle that could save up to 50% on fuel. It operates in a similar manner to those bladeless fans that push air through. The concept promises a 200-mile range at 200 mph. Being able to do that would certainly be a nice little upgrade on the daily commute many face today.

Down in the video below, we check in with the vehicle that has been proposed as an air taxi service. The VTOL is about the size of a helicopter minus any spinning propellers. Instead, what they call fluidic propulsion is powered by a gas generator and based on gas turbines. While some might expect something like this to be electric, the brand says that they aren’t ready to rely on the battery technology just yet but are completely adaptable should that tech become much more available.
