It’s a plane; it’s a drone; it’s got the best of both
The IIT-incubated ePlane Company tries to hit the sweet spot between floating like a drone and flying like a plane
The startup aims to keep the cost of the e-plane below ₹1 cr, which would make it similar in price to a premium Range Rover
Flying taxis are closer to appearing in our skies than most realize. They are already undergoing trials in different parts of the world. And India may soon join this club as an electric plane made by an IIT Madras professor and his startup co-founder revs up for field testing later this year.
