Passenger Drone first manned flight

On Aug 28, the company Passenger Drone announced that it had been working in “stealth mode” on a two-seat distributed electric VTOL aircraft: “For the past three years, Passenger Drone has been developing a zero-emissions, easy-to-use passenger drone that has the potential to eliminate stressful commutes. With 16 electric engines, the drone can travel up to 80 km/h [43 kt] while barely making a noise.” Unmanned flights began in early May 2017, including testing with different simulated payload weights, simulated engine failures and different control modes. In August 2017, the first manned flights with passengers onboard took place.
