This is Bell Nexus, the “air taxi” concept from the company formerly known as Bell Helicopter. A hybrid-electric propulsion aircraft, the Nexus will use six tilting ducted fans to take off and land vertically from a rooftop or launchpad. And more importantly, you may be able to hail one for a crosstown trip using Uber’s new aerial service in the not-too-distant future.  

BELL was first one of the Air craft manufacturer who partnered with the Uber in the year of 2017.
Bell is aiming to have the Nexus in flight over a handful of major markets by the “mid-2020s,” said Scott Drennan, director of innovation at Bell. He argued that the key element about the aircraft was its “approach ability,” which makes it the ideal vehicle for this proposed flying taxi service.


Uber plans to launch its Uber Air service in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and Los Angeles, starting in four years. The company has said it will also open an international market that has yet to be announced.

The company is giving a glimpse into the future as it readies a likely initial public offering for 2019, alongside rival ride-hailing company Lyft. Both companies filed confidential paperwork with the SEC in the same week in December. Uber has reportedly been valued at as much as $120 billion for its IPO, while banks pitching Lyft have valued that company at about $18 billion to $30 billion, according to Bloomberg

This Aircraft looks like a toy but this is an aircraft you would feel safe and comfortable bringing your family into.” The large ducts hide the rotors, which should help ease any anxiety from customers about losing a limb from its fast-spinning blades. In other words, “for people who aren’t accustomed to VTOL type aircraft,” Drennan said — which, arguably, is everyone who doesn’t regularly commute via helicopter.

This looks damn sexy Only all-electric VTOL aircraft will be included in Uber’s air taxi service, though, which would seem to preclude a hybrid propulsion system like Bell’s Nexus vehicle. That said, Mark Moore, engineering director of aviation at Uber, said the concept was an important “first step” toward an all-electric, fully commercial flying taxi service. 

“This will permit testing to occur in the near-term, while the batteries are getting ready for all-electric solutions,” Moore told.

At Uber, we’re facilitating this entirely new transportation system because we are the link to the users.”
