The generations born in the 70s, 80s and 90s certainly remember the cartoon “The Jetsons”, who flew with “cars”. Since then, we were wondering when this would become a reality.
What was only possible in movies and cartoons a little while ago now seems to be close to reality. Yea! We already have a date to have the so-called flying cars on the market. It will be from 2026, just four years from now!
And do you know how that will be possible? From a startup! to Eve, a startup – Embraer’s urban air mobility company. This week, Eve signed a contract to manufacture electric vertical take-off and landing (eVROL) aircraft for the United Arab Emirates. The contract provides for the delivery of up to 34 vehicles from 2026.
And here in Brazil, the path is also set! The forecast is also to start in 2026. And, by 2035, it is estimated that more than 200 flying cars may be circulating or rather flying through the airs of Rio de Janeiro, transporting more than 4.5 million passengers on more than 100 routes. . On an initial estimate, a car trip that would take about two hours could be done in just 16-18 minutes.
Can you imagine what it will be like? Have you already calculated the time savings that this can generate and how much it can impact your day-to-day appointment schedule? Speaking of time, have you ever thought about traveling for work or even on a long holiday, how much this can make our lives easier, reducing hours of congestion on the road or even connections at airports? Not to mention the benefits to the environment with less pollution on the streets.
It is true that all this is still being evaluated and designed. We would need other infrastructures such as a specific helipad and other forms of connections. But everything seems to move at an incredible speed that soon, we will have a new form of locomotion. And maybe, more and more!
The coolest thing is that everything is linked to innovation, technology and startups, which are companies characterized by offering innovative products or services. And we’re full of startups popping up out there taking advantage of the possibilities. The “new Jetsons” are coming to our reality!
