Decongestion of urban centres, control over transport time, saving time. Flying is a unique experience, and enables tourist sites to be seen from another perspective.
For a large majority of Mediterranean countries, tourism is a major economic sector. All these countries have tourist sites that are mainly reached on foot. HOVERTAXI offers an aerial overflight solution which could interest the vast majority of Mediterranean countries.
In progress: Realisation of a Proof Of Concept of Urban Mobility in the Southern Region.
