With every passing day the future draws near, and all those concepts you watched in sci-fi movies are becoming a reality one by one. Kitty Hawk is the “flying car” company that’s financially backed by Google founder Larry Page, has published the first video of its prototype aircraft.
The Kitty Hawk Flyer is an “all-electric aircraft” this currently limited to operating over water and the beauty about it all, is that it doesn’t require a pilot’s license to fly. According to video commercial below, the company promises that people will be able to learn to fly the Flyer “in minutes.” A final version of the car will be ready for consumer use by the end of this year.
Kitty Hawk hasn’t said exactly what the Flyer is for, and no price has been set yet for the retail version. But the company is using some kind of membership priority placement to entice eager pilots to sign up. Members will also get a $2,000 discount off the eventual retail price. Here is the sad part for international users, Kitty Hawk says that there are no plans to ship the vehicle outside the US due to regulation limitations.
