Welcome to the future of inner city flight

A Chinese company, Ehang, just began its world-first public autonomous electric passenger drone flights.

The drone can carry a single passenger weighing up to 100 kg on a 23-minute flight at sea level at a speed of 100 km/h and is touted as being able to fly through fogs and in force 7 typhoon conditions.

Long-range test flights were conducted at speeds of 130 km/h over 8.8 km.

They will cost up to $300,000 each.
