Uber all set to launch commercial trips of uberAIR by 2023

JetBlue says it will fly New York City pizza to people in Los Angeles and deliver it right to your door

Although piloted at first, the goal is for the flying taxis to become autonomous.

Uber isn't the only company with flying taxi dreams.

The company signed a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) and a Joint Work Statement (JWS).

Elevate, also the name of Uber's flying taxi business, wants to let passengers hail a flying vehicle via app and hop from one rooftop sky port to another.

This is Uber's second agreement with the space agency. At the summit today, Uber Head of Elevate Eric Allison shed some light on the cost of uberAIR, Uber's aerial ridesharing service, for consumers.

After it announced its intention to launch flight demonstrations of uberAIR in Dallas-Fort Worth/Frisco Texas and Los Angeles six months ago, cab aggregator giant Uber has now reinforced a few partnerships with key manufacturers and technology companies to make further inroads into the aviation sector.

In the vision of Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi, people will use the Uber app to call an air taxi and then go to the nearest rooftop sky port for pickup.

It envisions a fleet of electric jet-powered vehicles - part helicopter, part drone and part fixed-wing aircraft - running multiple small rotors capable of both vertical take off and landing and rapid horizontal flight.

Uber said it had reopened its selection process to include other cities which fit more of its criteria for showcasing how flying taxis can help to relieve urban congestion.

Some of those firms appeared alongside Uber at the event with their own concept designs for what the flying taxis could look like.

May 08-NASA and Uber will team up to study and develop a safe and efficient method for future delivery drone and small passenger aircraft operations in crowded populated areas, the two announced Tuesday, May 8.

By 2023 Uber hopes to allow customers to request rides.

"Giving time back to people is something we're very passionate about at Uber", Uber Chief Product Officer Jeff Holden said in a video about the San Francisco company's plans. The event - held for the first time in Dallas previous year - brings together vehicle manufacturers, regulators, investors, technology suppliers, and federal & local policy makers to explore the future of urban aviation.
