Today, Holden said Uber is still looking to start testing flying taxi services by 2020, first Los Angeles, and then in the Dallas-Fort Worth area-both of which are home to global airports.
In interviews with the U.S. media overnight, including Bloomberg, Jeff Holden, Uber's chief product officer, confirmed the ride-hailing company had signed an agreement to work with NASA on "unmanned traffic management" systems. By 2023, Uber believes a paid, intra-city flying taxi could be up and running.
He said: "Los Angeles has always been a place where innovators come to build new ideas that can change how we live our lives".
The company's plans may cause some skepticism considering 2020 is only two years away. While all ride hailing services are a bit expensive compared to public transport, Uber's air service is only expected to cost about the same as a ride with UberX.

And it seems that Uber has been making the moves to ensure it will happen.
Uber also announced it has signed an agreement with Sandstone Properties to develop skyport infrastructure to serve as takeoff and landing hubs for uberAIR flights at Sandstone's 20 locations in the greater L.A. area.
If it all works, the payoff would be a new supply or revenue for the company, and hopefully less stressful rush-hour commutes for consumers. That's down from about one hour and 20 minutes by vehicle, according to CNN. There's also Volocopter, which successfully tested a flying vehicle in Dubai back in September of this year.
