This is not out of the question. Dubai starts their drone taxi service in July.
Lilium is a two year old company and flew their first drone a month ago. The technology is already here and gets better every day. http://www.greencarreports.com/news...al-takeoff-and-landing-jet-first-flight-video

Weight is a consideration when flying.
Uber couldn't care less about it when WEIGHT overloads our cars destroying them.
Aircraft can fall out of the sky when overloaded.

Smaller aircraft are very much regulated by weight.
I did hear that obesity cost the airlines an extra $750 million/year in fuel consumption.

Probably costs Uber drivers more than that.
Air traveling machines FALL OUT OF THE AIR when over weight !

BREAKING NEWS:
North Korea totally destroyed by stealth fleet of nuclear-armed flying taxis, which the US covertly launched overnight from a rank in Seoul.
Kim Jong Nong reported to be "again having a bad hair day".
ICan just imagine . . . . Kim Jong ordering hundreds of Ubers to use as bombers. . . .

Hyperloop highway? You could travel from US to India in 3 hours for $50
A tube transport company called ET3 said it has figured out a way to create a 'freeway' that its CEO Daryl Oster says can enable 'space travel on earth

Their dream is to create car-free cities within 5 years. Pipe dream?

I would like to give you that money, but some of us can't even afford 66c a day to stay in the personal transport business.
To shortcut the development costs, I've contacted Dietrich Mateschitz - he makes a drink that will "give you wings".

More double speak. Flying cars have five major problems, and those problems have hundreds of billions of dollars in their coffers. Fact: the first electric car was built in the early 1900's but never saw the light of day for almost 100 years (thanks to big oil, etc.). History... it repeats itself. Move along -- nothing to see here.

U.S. ride-hailing service Uber Technologies Inc expects to deploy flying taxi services in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, and Dubai in 2020, Chief Product Officer Jeff Holden said at the Uber Elevate Summit in Dallas.

Uber’s flying taxis will be small, electric aircraft that takeoff and land vertically, or VTOL aircraft, enabling zero operational emissions and quiet enough to operate in cities without disturbing the neighbors.

The company is working with Hillwood Properties to make four vertiports - VTOL hubs with multiple takeoff and landing pads, and charging infrastructure - for Uber in Dallas starting next year, Holden said.

Uber has also teamed up with companies such as Bell Helicopter, Aurora, Pipistrel, Mooney and Embraer to make the flying taxis.

The company, which has partnered with the Dubai government, expects to conduct passenger flights as part of the World Expo 2020 in Dubai.

If Tesla ( Nikola) had had his way,all cars would have run on electricity for a century,pulling power out of the air with an antenna,electricity stored and using the stratosphere as a generator.
Such a waste . . .
