Airbus are working on prototypes for flying cars, what happens when they run out of gas?


Speaking during a news conference on the aerospace group's annual results, in London, Airbus Group Chief Executive Tom Enders, announced that the Airbus Group were planning to test a prototype for a self-piloted flying car. The Idea is that the vehicle could avoid gridlock on city roads.

According to the report by Reuters, the Airbus Group has setup a division called Urban Air Mobility.

The aim of this division is to research and investigate new concepts, including a flying car which could transport people in what might be a helicopter like vehicle. This would transport a group of people that had pre-booked a journey.

Tom Enders continued, "We take this development very seriously", and confirmed that they were still in the experimental phase.  As the worlds largest maker of commercial helicopters Enders said that Airbus wanted to invest to make the most of new technologies.

Airbus recognise that any such development would need to be environmentally friendly.  A flying vehicle could potentially save infrastructure planners millions, for example, flying cars wouldn't need bridges or roads.

Airbus declined to specify the amount of investment the group has put into this type of development.
