Electric air taxis and flying cars keep getting closer to reality, especially after United Airlines' announcement this week that air taxi service is coming to New York. It is the first official announcement of an air taxi service in the U.S. The Pier 6 Manhattan Heliport, on the East River close to Wall Street, will sprint passengers to Newark Liberty International Airport in less than 10 minutes. In rush hour traffic, the trip takes an hour or longer, with the route being around 22 miles. But the air taxi will take a more direct shot between the two points.
