Where we are
We dreamt of flying cars, instead we got 140 characters. But commuter flight is still in sight with companies like EChang and Volocopter testing small helicopters while others propose designs for roadable aircraft and vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) devices.
Where we’re going
Adding affordable and comfortable short distance flights to well-connected transport networks will mean much greater efficiency and mobility across large cities and geographically challenged regions.
How to think about it
Consider high cost problems that would benefit from flying. How could flight enhance journeys for people and cargo in major cities or areas with geographical barriers like mountains?
