Uber is racing to make its dream of commercial flying taxis a reality by 2023. In Uber's Elevate Summit 2018, the company detailed its dream of “Skyports,” which would be designated spots for customer pickup, landing and launching of its air taxis.

The “Skyport” is a futuristic concept that would rely on the un-utilized space found above highways in every major city, creating a hotspot for urban commuters and transforming air mobility, notes Engadget.

In the summit, six architecture and engineering firms presented their first designs for uberAIR Skyports, giving a glimpse of how air taxis would carry out high-volume operations in and around city skies, reports Rotor & Wing.
