The FAA does not require aircraft registration or pilot certification to operate the Flyer.

The device has small dimensions - 4,2 2,6 m - and intuitive control.

"Making Flyer accessible, which is what we do at our Lake Las Vegas training facility, helps more people experience the freedom and possibilities of vehicles of the future", a Kitty Hawk spokeswoman was quoted by AFP.

The Kitty Hawk Flyer sports 10 battery-powered propellors and two control sticks, and looks like a human-sized drone, according to photos and videos of the final design posted to the Kitty Hawk website. The Cora, now undergoing tests in New Zealand, could be used as part of a ride-sharing or taxi service, according to the company.

Recall that in Ukraine have perfected the airplane "Dolphin".

Cora is a two-seater electric aircraft that takes off and lands vertically. However, the company states that the Flyer is only to be used over water and uncongested areas, so don't imagine you'll be using one to skip the traffic in your daily commute just yet.

Green screamed and whined to the bench saying he didn't foul James, and even went as far as to call him a "f***ing p***y". For a Toronto-based sports writer, it is an odd feeling to come to Cleveland and see the home team as heavy underdogs.

At a distance of 15m (50ft) away, the "car" is said to be as loud as the average lawnmower.

Eventually, Kitty Hawk CEO Sebastian Thrun hopes that it will only take five minutes before riders are ready to pilot the Flyer. In terms of safety, Kitty Hawk has now chose to limit altitude to between 3 to 10 ft (0.9 to 3 m), and maximum speed to 20 miles per hour (32 km/h).

Pricing for the Flyer has yet to be revealed, and Kitty Hawk didn't disclose when it will begin deliveries.

The aircraft is designed for one person, it can be airborne 12-20 minutes.

He remains chief executive of Google-parent Alphabet but the Kitty Hawk project is a personal pursuit, not part of the tech giant´s operations. Since then, the Flyer has received an update, and it's now open for test flights for people interested in placing preorders.
