The electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) vehicle is being tested by officers with an aim to put them into action by 2020, CNN quoted Brigadier Khalid Nasser Alrazooqi, general director of Dubai Police‘s artificial intelligence department, as saying.
Hoversurf chief operating officer Joseph Segura-Conn said Dubai Police have exclusive rights to order as many units as they want, adding:
“They’re going to let us know in the next month or two if they’d like any more… If they would like 30 or 40, we’ll make it happen for them.”
Orders for the $150,000 vehicle are also open for civilians, after meeting Federal Aviation Administration guidelines which means you do not need a pilot’s licence to fly it.
CNN also reported that Dubai is being considered as one of three possible locations for a manufacturing site for the S3 2019, with Segura-Conn saying Hoversurf is in talks “with three companies in different locations around the world”.
