Flying cars may be closer than you think!

Uber has announced a plan to partner with NASA to develop flying taxis.

Leaders for Uber say they want to cut down on traffic in urban and congested areas.

NASA says it plans to conduct simulations to create industry standards and regulations for the flying vehicles.

Passengers will be able to book their ride in-app just as they do for a regular Uber ride.

The company is hoping this service will be available by the year 2023.
