Could Uber soon be using flying cars?

Turns out, Uber wants flying cars to be a reality just as much as we do.

In a 98-page paper released Thursday, the ride-sharing company details its desire to one day have a network of electric aircraft that take off and land vertically.

But Uber wants another company to make the flying cars for them.

AeroMobil, a company out of Slovakia, has been flight-testing its prototype for a flying car for the past couple years. It hopes to have its two-seat flying roadster on the market next year.

And a group of MIT graduates have been working on their flying vehicle since 2009.

The current model has a range of 400 miles while in the air.

So Uber's plan for a flying car fleet could happen sooner rather than later.

What's even better is that the company estimates the price for a 15-minute flying Uber journey could end up being as low as $21.
