Vertical Take Off and Landing vehicles (VTOLs) and Electric Vertical Take Off and Landing Vehicles (eVTOLs) are considered to be the future of human mobility.

Alex Taylor envisions a future in which residents of Lowell will hop in a personal aircraft to make a quick 25-minute commute to their workplace in Chicago. He sees a time in which people in remote areas can be delivered life-saving supplies by autonomously flown planes that can land in a space the size of a parking spot.
At age 17, most of us are still adjusting to the responsibility that comes with getting a driver’s license. But Alex Taylor has already moved beyond roads and taken to the sky, becoming the youngest commercial drone pilot in the U.S. last year and founding his own drone company.
