Volocopter's electric air taxi took to the sky over Singapore's Marina Bay. The flight was manned by one pilot and lasted about two minutes. "Today's test flight was truly a milestone forward for the introduction of urban air mobility. You know, from what the outset might look like a short flight, actually this was the first time that a national civil aviation authority actually allowed a piloted flight at such an iconic scene in the heart of a megacity," said Florian Reuter, CEO of Volocopter.
