This vehicle has 5 seats, operates with 6 propellers, has the same design as the remote control aircraft.

The model of a flying taxi named Skai was developed by Alakai Technology Company. It was launched at a technology event in the city of Los Angeles, California, USA.

This vehicle has 5 seats, operating with 6 propellers. In addition, it also has the same style as the remote control flying devices. It uses completely hydrogen gas, environmentally friendly fuel.


The prototype of a flying taxi is called Skai, from Alakai Technology Company.

According to Dr. Bruce Holmes, Engineer of Alakai Technology Company, hydrogen gas is the cleanest form of energy available on the planet. Many designs of competitors use batteries. But Alakai believes that it can achieve lower environmental impact and better performance from fuel cells.

Fuel cells have a much higher energy density than batteries, he said. Thus it means they can store more energy in a given volume. This allows weight reduction without sacrificing the scope of operation. Skai's fuel cells are also 99% recyclable, do not use rare earth metals in lithium-ion batteries and have a lifespan that lasts decades. Fueling is also faster than charging, less than 10 minutes.


Skai flying taxi is capable of carrying 4 to 5 passengers. It depends on the driver or unmanned version.

“Hydrogen gas is the cleanest fuel. The only waste that it emits into the environment is water, drinkable if we take advantage of it, ”said Dr. Bruce Holmes, Alakai Technology Company Engineer with AFP correspondent.

According to Dr. Bruce Holmes, Alakai will take hydrogen from renewable sources, such as wind, solar and hydropower. Instead of building a network of permanent refueling stations. Alakai plans to refuel his Skai vehicles from trucks. Similar to how airplanes are fueled on runways at airports. That eliminates a major infrastructure headache, which is now upsetting fuel-cell vehicle manufacturers on the ground.


Alakai currently has four main uses planned for Skai.

A passenger version of Skai Cab will be used as a flying taxi. It is similar to what Uber and many other companies have proposed.

Skai Cargo model will be used as a dedicated flying vehicle.

The Skai Med version will target first responders. While Skai Craft will be designed for use as personal transport, through sales to individual owners or through sharing services.

Steve Hanvey, CEO of Alakai Technology Company said: “Skai will provide mobility when moving to customers. This is a clean vehicle, using hydrogen gas as fuel. Very little noise, thanks to special engine design. Skai can carry 4-5 passengers, depending on whether it is self-driving or accompanied by pilots.

According to Alakai, this flying taxi is also equipped with an umbrella. Skai needs to complete the certification of the FAA, before it can go into production.


The Skai flying taxi model can continue to fly, even if a propeller is lost and an emergency landing can be performed after losing two propellers.

This flying taxi is considered the ideal means of transportation in the future. It is very suitable in cities where traffic jams often occur and have high levels of air pollution.

Alakai Company plans to officially launch the product in 2021 and plans to produce 10,000 units per year.

Earlier, technology companies around the world were also racing to build eco-friendly taxi types. After the successful test of the Lithium electric taxi model operated by the German company. Alakai Company is the first company to introduce a taxi that uses hydrogen gas in the world.
