Recently Uber the company first showed the prototype of his flying taxi. To fly on such vehicles, we will again and soon, but it is obvious that sooner or later it should become the norm, because the places on the roads are all missing. Uber is planning to raise its first passengers in the air somewhere in 2020. You can imagine that in 2028 we will all actively use flying taxi. And how will look your stay in 2028?
It is obvious that not only taxis, but also a kind of stop for passengers where they will be able to Board a taxi and to go with it. In UberAIR something similar called “Skyports”. Ports of heaven is nothing like stopping on a hill from which you can fly a taxi and where they will be able to sit down.
On the second day Elevate 2018, the second annual conference of the Uber dedicated to air transport, six designers and architects showed their vision of the future stops. All of the work was subject to the same requirements: each Skyport needs to serve more than 4 thousand passengers per hour and not to occupy more than three acres.
Project from BOKA Powell can provide two thousand takeoffs and landings every hour.
The company Humphrey & Partners when setting up their project was inspired by bee hives. They tried to stop the future successfully fit into what we see on the streets now. In their stop there is a car Park.
Modular Skyport from Gannet Fleming is designed to work with all types of public transport.
Project from Corgan consists of three parts: highway in the lower part, a railway station in the middle and the landing area at the top.
Another station similar to a beehive, presented the Beck Group.
The project is really high stop created the Pickard Chilton and ARUP. This is the only project in which a flying taxi will land and take off at different levels.
