Uber isn’t letting pavement be the final step in its bid for world transportation domination. The ridesharing company has reached the next phase of concepts for Uber Elevate, a fleet of “vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft,” a.k.a. flying cars. In a dream pairing for transportation futurists, Uber Elevate has teamed up with NASA to create new traffic plans for these on-demand flights.

Uber Elevate needs to propose its plans to the Federal Aviation Administration in order for the project to proceed. There will be strict standards for safety and integration with existing air transportation. Uber Elevate has already listed Dallas, Dubai, and Los Angeles as it’s pilot cities where the service’s Skyports will be located.
