Beijing Unveils Its Plan to Revolutionize the Economy with Flying Cars

China Introduces Action Plan for Commercializing Flying Cars in “Low-Altitude Economy”

Beijing is set to revolutionize its economy with the introduction of flying cars, as outlined in its first action plan for the development of low-altitude airspace. The plan, which was released by the central government, aims to establish the aviation sector as a new growth engine for the economy.

The initiative includes pilot programs for electric vertical takeoff and landing aircraft (eVTOL), also known as air taxis, which will be introduced in regions such as Guangdong province, Hong Kong, and Macau. By 2030, Beijing plans to have a thriving aviation equipment industry in place that will operate at low altitudes to provide intelligent and eco-friendly air travel and ferry services across various sectors of society.

The idea of a “low-altitude economy” was first mentioned in the government work report during the annual parliamentary meetings that concluded on March 11. This move underscores China’s commitment to enhancing its aerospace industry and embracing innovative aviation technology to drive economic growth. The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology is leading this initiative to transform the way people travel and transport goods in the future.
