IKAR Aviation, a subsidiary of British-based IKAR Holdings targeting 2027 for entry to a battery powered aircraft.
The electric vertical take-off and landing drones will not need a runway but can travel long distances like an aeroplane.
Flying taxis will help alleviate traffic congestion in crowded cities
President of IKAR Holdings, Sertan Ayçiçek, stated “The future of flight is electric. Leaving traffic below and transporting people more safely than by car, at the speed of a small airplane, yet quietly enough to converse with fellow passengers while flying, will become a reality in the near future.
One of the key advantages of the electric motors powering these flying taxis is the reduction in noise and pollution compared to traditional aircraft. This aligns with IKAR Aviation’s commitment to environmental sustainability and contributes to the vision of efficient and eco-friendly urban air mobility.
We believe that the era of efficient and environmentally friendly urban air mobility is on the horizon, bringing about a transformative shift in the way people commute within cities.
IKAR Holdings is a multifaceted group company based in London, comprising over 40 entities operating across 14 diverse sectors, including energy, aviation, construction, tourism, technology, E-mobility, education, and healthcare.
