Those flying cars that we were told for years would be here in 2020 will finally be here by mid-decade…really.

A company named Tavistock Development Corp. is reportedly preparing to build a large facility or “hub” in Lake Nona, near Orlando.

From there, it plans to operate what the company calls a “high-speed electric air mobility network.”

The hub, which will employ about 100 people and should be completed by 2025, will be the first of its kind in the country.

Tavistock will offer the service in conjunction with a German company named Lilium, which already manufactures a five-passenger aircraft that takes off vertically.

Lilium announced the partnership on Wednesday.

The press release goes on to state that a 186-mile trip could take just an hour, and passengers will, of course, be able to make reservations through their smartphones.
