Google co-founder's Kitty Hawk unveils its electric autonomous flying taxi

As The New York Times reports, Kitty Hawk has been flying Cora over the South Island of New Zealand since October previous year.

Google co-founder Larry Page's aviation start-up has unveiled its first project - new air-taxi prototype named Cora.

"This is a fully electric aircraft that rises into the air like a helicopter, flies like a plane and then lands again like a helicopter", she explained. Cora will use 12 lift rotors on the wings to take off and land vertically and will use a single propeller to power its fixed-wing flight.

"It has ... substantively contributed to the level of acrimony and dissention and conflict, if you will, within the public". The panel has repeatedly been denied visas to visit Myanmar.

In April past year, Google co-founder Larry Page publicly announced he was building an electric, flying auto through a company called Kitty Hawk. The idea is to make the flying taxi accessible to all, even those who don't have a pilot's license. Kitty Hawk is working on further certification so it can launch a commercial air taxi service.

Formerly Zee.Aero, Zephyr Airworks is Kitty Hawk's operator in New Zealand, although the companies haven't put a timeline on when it will be available for rides.

Cora is also self-piloting, can fly faster than 150 kilometers per hour (93 miles per hour) and has a range of 100 kilometers (62 miles), according to the company. We first saw the news via The New York Times. It's been testing the vehicles through a local operator called Zephyr Airworks, and Cora has an "experimental airworthiness certificate" from both New Zealand and USA aviation authorities.
