Recently, many companies have been working on their own flying taxi service, while various flight tests have also been carried out.
While some flying taxis are currently ready to carry passengers, regulatory rules and unobtainable permits prevent transportation for now.
One of these companies, Autoflight, which manufactures electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing (eVTOL) vehicles, announced that it has broken the range record.
The company achieved this record with its flying taxi prototype named Prosperity.
