Finally, I can overpay for a fare in the sky!
By Alex Firer
  • Imagine you’re sitting there in traffic, grumbling to yourself, and kind of sleepy. Kind of like that you don’t want to drive level of sleepy. And you wish — you wish — there was a flying taxi that can raise you above all this terrible traffic and get you to your location feeling nice and safe and sound! Well, my traffic hating friend, I have some incredible news — the first flying taxi is here! Sure, it’s only in Dubai — for now — but the flying taxi, created by German tech company Volocopter, took its first test flight and because of its success maybe you too can be a big flying doofus soaring through the sky!

    Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Crown Prince of Dubai, sat in the taxi’s first flight and praised the experience, saying — “We are glad to witness today the test flight of the autonomous air taxi…This is another testament to our commitment to driving positive change. We are constantly exploring opportunities to serve the community and advance the prosperity and happiness of society.” Me, I can’t wait until it flies me home when I’m drunk and I can barf out the window.
