In urban areas, individual mobility and public transport systems both on the ground and in the air are reaching their limits. Our society's need for flexible yet affordable mobility grows in a way that surpasses the capabilities of existing modes of transport such as cars, trains and scheduled flights. Based on the vision of a quiet and inexpensive small aircraft, the Silent Air Taxi opens up individual mobility in the air for regional distances, relieves strain on the main public transport providers, and simultaneously shortens individual travel times.
