Having recently announced plans to start testing its flying taxi service in Dubai and Dallas in 2020, Uber has also now added Los Angeles to that list.
Uber on Wednesday unveiled a partnership with NASA that will see it develop flying taxis priced competitively with standard Uber journeys.
Customers could hail a flying taxi much in the same way they would with an Uber auto: via smartphone.

The likes of Boeing, Airbus and Uber are getting very serious about putting these things into the sky, the lattermost of which has just formed an agreement with NASA to work out how to manage all that incoming air traffic.
It is now stepping up its efforts to make the project a reality. Dallas-Fort Worth wants to be the first metropolitan area in the USA to explore a flying auto pilot and Uber has already partnered with Hillwood Properties in the region.
