LAS VEGAS — Bell Helicopter got everyone's attention at CES today and revealed its air taxi experience, complete with a luxurious interior cabin design and fully integrated user interface. Bell is the first company ever to debut an 'air taxi' concept at CES.

Bell is partnering with Uber, and is on a mission to bring its "mobility of the future" to the masses. The four-passenger cabin demonstrates Bell's view of an on-demand mobility aircraft that focuses on a people-first engineered user experience tailored with an urban air taxi ride, normally reserved for the very wealthy or connected.

Once onboard, passengers will sync to an intuitive user experience display, where they can catch up on world news, hold a video conference call, share files with other passengers, or simply unplug from the crowded streets below in a comfortable, relaxing space.

By putting on an HTC Vive headset, attendees at CES experienced an augmented reality simulator inside the cabin, to show what the flying experience is like, while touching down at a red-carpet premiere and several cross-city day and night trips.

"Bell Helicopter is innovating at the limits of vertical flight and challenging the traditional notion of aviation to solve real-world problems," stated Bell Helicopter's President and CEO Mitch Snyder during the the CES event. "The future of urban air taxi is closer than many people realize. We believe in the positive impact our design will have on addressing transportation concerns in cities worldwide."
