Israel is always on the cutting edge of technology, and this latest news is no exception. Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has teamed up with an American company, skyTran, to bring flying cars to Israel.
The idea is to cut down on pollution from cars, ease road congestion for Israel’s commuters, and provide the public with fast and affordable transportation. IAI and skyTran will introduce the new system in Tel Aviv, and shortly thereafter implement it all across Israel.
These “flying cars” run on powerful magnetic rails suspended several feet in the air. Each unit holds two people, and travels at twice the speed of the average automobile. Tickets will cost approximately $5 per person, per ride. The system is expected to be up and running by 2016.
