Has anyone out there seen the proposal of flying taxis?. There is a british firm called AVCEN who is inventing a small plane called a Jetpod. The
jetpod is not just a taxi , there are going to be other variants such as an ambulance , a private jet , and a military variant that could carry
infantry squads. The military variant looks like some WW2 crash glider that used to carry troops and equipment. There is also an unmanned rescue
variant with VTOL capability.
I doubt they will be manufactured at the end of this decade but it would be good if they do. Anyway it all depends on politics and funds. Inventions
that are somehow ahead of our time always somehow seem to fail but if they do get accepted they happen to come back a lot later.
Anyway check it out
