CityAirbus has four power plants with two engines and two propellers each, and a cabin designed for four passengers. And another advantage — they are virtually silent.
His first flight machine made in Germany in December 2019, successfully passing the test. However, when they will be put into wide operation, is still unknown, according to the publication Time Out.
