Google’s Larry Page is getting a two person plane drone hybrid approved as an air taxi

Kitty Hawk is a flying car funded by Google co-founder Larry Page and it will begin the regulatory approval process required for launching its autonomous passenger-drone system in New Zealand.

The firm’s two-person craft, called Cora, is a 12-rotor plane-drone hybrid that can take off vertically like a drone, but then uses a propeller at the back to fly at up to 110 miles an hour for around 62 miles at a time. The all-electric Cora flies autonomously up to 914 meters (3,000ft) above ground, has a wingspan of 11 meters, and has been eight years in the making.

There is a youtube video of the Kitty Hawk Cora but it cannot be embedded
