German start-up Lilium has conducted the first flight of its all-electric VTOL ‘aerial taxi’.

The maiden flight, which took place on the 20 April in Bavaria, saw the two-seat fly in unmanned mode and transition from hovering, to horizontal flight using swivelling ducted fans. The company now plans a larger five-seat production version to act as an urban aerial taxi.
