KXIP vs KKR Live Score

The company says you can learn to fly it in "less than an hour", and fly it without a pilot's license as an ultralight aircraft, meaning you'll need to keep it away from populated areas.

The Flyer is only meant to be used to fly over water at heights between 3 and 10 feet (1 to 3 meters).

Sebastian Thrun, Kitty Hawk's CEO, claimed earlier this year that they could take to the skies within five years.

Kitty Hawk's other model, the Cora, is a two-seat vehicle designed as alternative transportation in cities.

The Flyer is a real product that interested parties can preorder through the company's website now.

Google co-founder Larry Page has been invested in making flying cars a reality and it nearly happened this Wednesday.

However, Thrun said the vehicle can go much faster and he hopes it could one day be able to go "50, 60 or even 100mph".

Melania Trump , 47, attended a Hurricane briefing at the Federal Emergency Management Agency Headquarters (FEDA) on Wednesday. During her recovery from surgery they reported everything from near death, to facelift, to left the W.H.

There are 10 electric fans powered by a lithium-ion battery, and on a full charge the flight time varies from 12 to 20 minutes, depending on the weight of the pilot and the flight speed.

To ensure ease of use, the Flyer operates with software that utilizes data from multiple smart sensors for a fully stabilized and smooth flying experience.

"The joystick is so intuitive, but it's not the most comfortable thing I've ever sat in", she said. But according to a report on futurism, Crane was able to get a hang of the flight controls just after a training session that lasted for less than an hour.

The next step is to get Flyer in the hands of customers, although a price hasn't been released yet.

The company is now accepting applications - by invitation only - for a test flight model, the Straits Times reported.

"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 told AFP.

The Flyer's chief engineer wants to equip the vehicle with a parachute so that people can safely fly it higher.
