Jetpod Flying Taxi

Jetpod Flying Taxi

In 5 years you could be taking a flying taxi to London’s Heathrow Airport instead of the usual black cab, and it will even cost about the same.

London-based developers Avcen have come up with a concept for the Jetpod Flying Taxi: a small (5 passenger) plane that can take off and land in 400ft, is ultra-quiet, and will cruise at 350mph.

The trip from the center of London to the Airport would only take 2 or 3 minutes: I just hope they don’t make you turn up for the Jetpod 2 hrs before departure.
