27 Mar Here is Cora!
Thanks to Google co-founder Larry Page’s Kitty Hawk, flying taxis are getting closer !
The start-up has chosen New Zealand to test its product especially for its uncongested airspace.
Named Cora, this autonomous vehicule, designed for two passengers is powered by 12-rotor plane-drone hybride and takes off vertically. The aircraft can also deploy a parachute in case of a problem
The cora can travel a distance of 100km at a speed of 180km/h and reach an altitude of 915 meters
Kitty Hawk is already working on an app and technology to allow customers to hail flying taxis.
