This panel would be comprised of industry leaders who are actively working toward making the Air Taxi network a reality. In the last few years, vehicle designs from a wide range of industries including Space & Technology, Aviation and Automotive have been released to ignite the conversation. And ridesharing giant, Uber brought several companies together to design and manufacture eVTOLs (electric take-off and landing vehicles) to provide a new age of on-demand transportation for future generations. The convergence of these companies and technologies is accelerating our ability to achieve real improvements in air mobility and opening new possibilities for flight, such as addressing the issues surrounding transportation congestion in urban areas.


About Bell

Thinking above and beyond is what we do. For more than 80 years, we’ve been reimagining the experience of flight – and where it can take us.

Headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas – as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Textron Inc., – we have strategic locations around the globe. And with nearly one quarter of our workforce having served, helping our military achieve their missions is a passion of ours.
