This is the first time in a long time I have had one of those, ‘I want that!’ moments.
This looks like serious fun…. once you learn how to operate it. If this is the way of the future, I was born too early.
“ABOUT THE FLYER
The Kitty Hawk Flyer is a new, all-electric aircraft. It is safe, tested and legal to operate in the United States in uncongested areas under the Ultralight category of FAA regulations. We’ve designed our first version specifically to fly over water. You don’t need a pilot’s license and you’ll learn to fly it in minutes. We publicly revealed the working prototype in April 2017. The official Flyer will be available by the end of the year.”
” When we set out to build the Flyer, we wanted to engineer a personal aircraft that’s easy to fly and accessible for all. We imagined simple controls and advanced electronic capabilities so that you could learn to fly it safely in minutes. We also wanted it to be 100% electric, and take off and land vertically. The Flyer would be so compact that it could fit comfortably in a garage.
And now it’s here.
We unveiled our first working prototype of the Flyer in April 2017. It’s an Ultralight vehicle under Part 103 of the FAA regulations, and you don’t need a pilot’s license to operate it. As you can see it’s a bit rough around the edges, but we were so excited to show you its capabilities that we didn’t want to wait until we finished its design. The consumer version will be available by the end of this year.”
