A German startup is making serious moves to make futuristic, vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircrafts a reality in a commercial setting. VTOLs are exactly what they sound like – aircrafts that can take off vertically without needing a runway. The German startup, e-volo, has been working on its VTOL since 2011. But several other contenders have entered the space as of late, like Uber, Airbus, and Zee.Aero, a startup funded by Google co-founder Larry Page.
