Israel starts trials of drone taxis, could be operating in 2 years

Israel begins a two-year trial of drone taxis and delivery systems.

The trials are being conducted by the Israel National Drone Initiative, a collaboration of several government entities.

A statement from the initiative says that over the last week “11 drone operating companies and supporting companies operated in the airspace, conducting complex experiments to promote operational capabilities.

“This is the first initiative of its kind in the world for an extensive and multidisciplinary examination of new technologies, including the transportation of cargo and later, people,” says Transportation Minister Miri Regev.

Channel 12 reports that the drones could be licensed to operate at the end of the two-year trial.
