On November 11th, South Korea conducted a test flight of "Manned Air Taxi" to demonstrate and test the application of air flight technology. This is South Korea's first test flight of "Air Taxi".
In the morning, a two-seater "air taxi" took off from Yeouido and flew 3.6 kilometers around the Sogang Bridge and Mapo Bridge, lasting about 7 minutes.
The aircraft participating in this test flight was manufactured by a Chinese company.
According to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport of South Korea, the "Air Taxi" project is based on the "K-drone" management system, which is an air traffic management system dedicated to drones that can ensure the safe flight of multiple aircraft.
The Acting Mayor of Seoul Seo Jung Hee said that "air taxis" are the future transportation that mankind has always dreamed of. They provide new solutions for ground transportation problems and will continue to invest in funds.
