    Never heard of any of them.  No AirBus or Boeing?  Those are the only airplane companies I know.  Oh, and Lockheed and Northrop Grunman.

      Hahaha, yeah, me too.  Not sure if Uber is trying to build a fighter jet...

      General Atomics make those Reaper drones.

    You didn't think they were just working on this all by themselves did you?

      Of course not, but 5 legit companies isn't something to sneeze at either.

      No, Careem is a rideshare company based out of Dubai, UAE. Karem is an aircraft manufacturer.
