Kitty Hawk Flyer is your single-seat, all-electric flying machine

Flying car test flight over Las Vegas

Kitty Hawk, the flying vehicle company founded by Google's Larry Page has a new personal auto model coming to a sky near you.

The company was created a year ago in Google´s home town of Mountain View, California, and has been testing a prototype in New Zealand.

A company in Las Vegas is hoping to make the flying auto a product of the future.

The electric aircraft is capable of vertical take-off and landing like a helicopter.

One of these is America's Kitty Hawk, which on Thursday unveiled the production-ready version of its Flyer.

The film also stars Lakeith Stanfield , Sylvia Hoeks , Stephen Merchant , Claes Bang and Christopher Convery in important roles. Are you excited to watch Foy as Lis Salander? The brutal opening scene will definitely get your attention.

While we did get to see an earlier iteration of Flyer past year the new model is much sleeker, futuristic looking, and generally looks more like a finished product.

The flying vehicle will start at a speed of 20 miles per hour, and will be able to fly up to 10 feet above ground, with pilots ready to take the skies after just an hour of training, according to Bloomberg. In the USA, the Flyer falls under the FAA's rules for ultralight aircraft, meaning no pilot's license is needed so long as it's flown over water or "uncongested areas". Landing skids enable takeoff from land but are presumably designed for floatation, as the Flyer is meant to be used above water.

Kitty Hawk said that at 15 meters (50 feet) away, it sounded about as lound as a lawn mower, while from 250 feet away the volume was on par with a loud conversation.

"Riders" will initially be limited to an altitude of just 3-10 feet above the water at speeds of up to 20 miles per hour, with an expected flight duration of 12-20 minutes.

The uncovered cockpit appeared big enough for one person, with their head poking out as it might from a go-kart.

Valve institutes "anything goes" policy for Steam
If you're a developer, we shouldn't be choosing what content you're allowed to create. Valve removed it from Steam after widespread media coverage and condemnation.

"Our immediate priority is to invite small groups of people - customers, influencers, media and community members - to experience the freedom of flight here in our newly opened training facility".

Kitty Hawk published a 37-second video unveiling the updated Flyer and allowed the CNN reporter Rachel Crane to become the first journalist to pilot the vehicle.

Kitty Hawk's altitude and speed restrictions are said to be for "first riders".

The new flying machine is one of several concept vehicles being testing, with Uber and others in the mix.
