Instead of ordering Amazon packages or pizza for air delivery, we may one day hop in our sky taxis and go for a drone-powered weekend of shopping and dining before too long.

Drones may edge closer and closer to becoming our common couriers, photographers and even hunters, but when it comes to autonomous electric flying technologies, there’s still one area that seems out of reach: personal transportation. Joby Aviation aims to change that with its battery-powered aviation technology. For Joby CEO and founder JoeBen Bevirt, fast, convenient air travel seems nearly ready to hit the tarmac, and he’s been working on his baby—the S2 two-seat electric aircraft—since 2005. In addition to the piloted S2 and the newer four-seat S4, Joby has also started mapping out plans for its next-generation of unmanned, remotely controlled versions. In essence, drones for people.
