Called the Flyer, the device is more of a hover bike with a series of drone-style propellers that provide lift. Kitty Hawk has designed the Flyer so that it runs purely on electricity and features controls so easy to use that anyone could learn to fly it in minutes. It’s also designed for vertical take-off and landings and can reach a height of 15 feet.
The Kitty Hawk Flyer is a new, all-electric aircraft. It is safe, tested and legal to operate in the United States in un-congested 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.
