Brazil's Embraer plans to build electric flying taxi factory near Sao Paulo

The Brazilian plane maker Embraer says a new factory will be built near Sao Paulo to produce electric flying taxis which it hopes will take to the skies from 2026. The aircraft, to be made by its subsidiary Eve, will resemble a small helicopter with enough space for up to six customers. It is envisaged a trip will cost $50-$100 (£39-£78) per person. Eve says it already has orders for almost 3,000 air taxis. It hopes to assemble a prototype this year. US regulators recently released a timeline for air taxis to be flying there as early as 2025 https://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-66264229

                    Hopefully this kind of thing will "take off" and be a genuine threat to the aviation sector..Moore's Law will hopefully kick in and technology will double its advancement every two years and lower the cost of technology at the same time!!
