The slide shows current manufacturers of the air-taxis, funding situation and technological capabilities.
This sort of “manned drones” come in very different configurations and aim for different use-cases (short-range vs. long-range travel). Furthermore all the companies mentioned are on very different points of development – while some are still in a concept phase, others are already in the midst of the certification process. Same accounts for funding and/or backing by larger corporates (like car or aircraft manufacturers). The funding collected also shows the very early stage of this market segment – the certification process alone for the commercial use of an unmanned transport system is estimated to be up 1 billion USD. Not every company will be able to collect these funds.
Interesting to see is that most of the companies are very young which speaks fo a very new and quickly developing market segment.
