Mr Norbert Hofer is the Austrian Minister of Infrastructure and Transport. He announced that drone testing will begin in Austria soon. They will be intended exclusively for the carriage of passengers. With these words, Mr. Hofer gained the sympathy of numerous citizens and Austrian drivers when he raised the maximum allowed speed on the motorways to 140km / h. He now wants to open the first experimental taxi service line. He believes this line will revolutionize public transport. The tests will be performed on military training grounds. Mr. Norbert Hofer holds a pilot’s license. He has already tried driving in a prototype unmanned aerial vehicle. He stated, “It’s a strange feeling to sit in it and do nothing.”
Other members of the government are looking forward to the new project and look forward to its completion.
