Flying taxi is not large, does not require special take-off grounds and will be able to fly from anywhere, and Parking will occupy two standard places. To operate air taxi Airbus will be a special processor with artificial intelligence. He is able to self-learn, to respond to different types of obstacles in the air and react instantly to any danger.
