    Come ON. There is no way in heck this is happening. Give me a break. It's good to have dreams but come on. 2 years is NOTHING.

    Can we just get a flying car before we get a flying taxi?

      This doesn't even make sense. A flying taxi is a flying car!

        he means a car you can park in your driveway and fly around where you want. Great idea, I definitely trust all the wackos on the road enough to let them fly around their personal airplanes willy nilly.

      Can we just get the Uber drivers to show up in time? Why does it always say they are 4 minutes away and end up taking 8 minutes?

        I know you are being rhetorical but it's because the driver that was 4 minutes away decided to not pick you for whatever reason.

    How do the air space regulations work with something like this? I highly doubt they can pull this off in 2 years.

    Everyone, calm the F down.  This UberAir has been in the talks for a number of years (initially as a theoreticaly whitepaper) and the first test market will be Dubai. ...and this is on NY Post. Catch the flow?
