​NTU scientist on a mission to roll out cheap, safe electric air taxis


Published on : 11-Nov-2019

In June this year, Professor James Wang relocated to Singapore from Italy, armed with ideas to roll out a commercially viable electric air taxi in six years. He left Italian helicopter maker AgustaWestland, where he became known in 2013 for the invention, to join NTU to take his research to the next level. He now heads NTU’s four- month-old research and innovation centre that focuses on this specialised field, dubbed electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL).
