On Wednesday Kitty Hawk, the mythical flying car launch financed by Google co-founder Larry Page, unpacked his upgraded car. Now the flyer is open for test flight and CNN correspondent Rachel Crane was the first female newspaperman to drive the car. Hawk Kitty pledges to get humans into the sky in less than an hours thanks to the flyer's easy flyer steering system, which consists of only two joy sticks.
Start-up Chief Executive said ensuring that the flyer was publicly accepted was a top priorities and that he hoped to learnt a great deal from the test flight. On Wednesday, Kitty Hawk, the secret flying car start-up financed by Google co-founder Larry Page, unveiled a massive new release that promises to get humans in the sky in less than an hours.
Last year Kitty Hawk presented his first one. The flyer has since got an upgrade and is now open for test flight for those interested in pre-ordering. The 37-second Kitty Hawk released a 37-second clip that unveiled the latest flyer and enabled CNN correspondent Rachel Crane to become the first ever driver-accountant.
The flyer is solely inspected over sea level at a Las Vegas plant for security purposes. Crane was able to use the aircraft after only one hours of practice at a 6 mb and 10 ft above sea level. CEO of Kitty Hawk, Sebastian Thrun, who was involved in the development of Google's self-propelled vehicle development program, is hoping that the cars will one Day be able to travel up to 100 milliph over inhabited areas.
This flyer has 10 engines and only two joysticks, which Crane said were easily controlled. Kitty Hawk, with its small flyer pool, has already operated around 1,500 missions among interested parties and societal drivers, CNN reports. It is now the goal to get it into the customer's hand; they can show their interest via the company's website.
Mr Trun said ensuring that the flyer was accepted by the general public was the top business issue. "Besides security, the most important thing for us is social acceptance," he said on CNN. "Could humans be willing to travel with these instruments, be willing to co-exist with these instruments?
