World’s first flying car hub concept unveiledFebruary 8, 2021
Back in 2019, Hyundai was one of the first to announce the Personal Air Vehicle air hub for flying cars. In partnership with the British company Urban-Air Port, the concept was developed for the world’s first air airport, which should open a new page in the history of air travel.
According to representatives of both companies, the project will develop a zero-emission infrastructure. This will enable the launch of the first flights of the next generation of electric autonomous aircraft. Already now the project is being spoken of as a city air port.
“Cars need roads, trains need rails, and planes need airports. Electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) vehicles will need city air ports, ”explains Urban-Air Port.
The concept, dubbed Air-One, is supposed to improve connectivity and productivity. In addition, it will be able to offer environmentally friendly transport with zero emissions. The airport is expected to be 60% smaller than traditional air hubs, and deployment will take just a few days. Within the framework of such structures, it is easy to organize both passenger and cargo transportation, as well as support for rescue vehicles in emergency situations.
