German Chancellor Angela Merkel's said the taxi will be allowed to test on road and in the sky.

Audi and Airbus’s flying taxi concept could soon be a reality. The letter of intent was formally signed by German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The concept was shown at the Geneva motor show and it features a passenger pod which you can attach to either an electric car base or quadcopter top. It is autonomous, and it can drive and fly itself.

“Flying taxis aren’t a vision any longer, they can take us off into a new dimension of mobility,” German transport minister Andreas Scheuer told Bloomberg. “They’re a huge opportunity for companies and young start-ups that already develop this technology very concretely and successfully.”
