Passenger Drones in Dubai?

February 17, 2017

This is just like the Jetson’s cartoon coming to life!

A drone that can carry people will start being used in Dubai from July this year.

The Chinese model eHang 184 has already had test flights.

The drone can carry one passenger weighing up to 100 kg and has a 30 minute flight time. The passenger uses a touch screen to select a destination. There are no other controls inside the craft.

It has reported speeds of up to 160 kilometres per hour and can fly 50km on a single battery charge.
