Google Founder Larry Page Takes To The Skies

No more traffic jams, traffic lights, or crowds on the road: the flying taxi is upcoming. Kitty Hawk, which Google founder Larry Page owns, unveiled the prototypes. 'Cora' is the name that the flying taxis get. Read Google Founder Larry Page Takes To The Skies.

Larry Page Unveiled The Flying Taxi: Cora

Since last year, it has already been tested in New Zealand, but now 'Cora' has also been presented to the general public. The 'taxi' rises like a helicopter, transports like a car, and flies like a plane.

'Airport'Comes To You

In the first images of 'Cora,' twelve rotors can be seen, with which it is also possible to take off vertically. 'Bringing the airport to you,' the company Kitty Hawk calls it. Therefore, it is possible to take off and land from your backyard, the roof terrace, or a parking space.
Costs of this idea have not been announced, but it makes a big difference that Larry Page is behind the project. He is one of the founders of Google and has a capital of 53.7 billion dollars. This makes it one of the fifty richest in the world. Google Founder Larry Page Takes To The Skies.

America vs. Air Traffic

The company Kitty Hawk was started in California, but flight rights did not get it. That is why we had to move to New Zealand, where it could be tested with 'Cora.' Amazon previously wanted to test with drones as parcel deliverers, but that was not allowed in the United States. One of the big problems is that with a real breakthrough, 'escape routes' have to be made in the air to prevent complete chaos.

According to Prime Minister Jacina Ardern, there is enough room to test really well in New Zealand. Kitty Hawk is allowed to put 'Cora' electric flying in practice as a taxi, but still without passengers. By the way, without a pilot, because Cora is 'self-piloting.'
Cora is a new step towards more air traffic. Uber is also busy with flying cars, while aircraft manufacturer Airbus set aside 150 million dollars to invest in a private project with air traffic.

I'm interested in everything that has to do with sustainability. My house is solar powered and I have my own water supply and filtering system.  I grow my own vegetables and fruit. Most of the time I go on the road by bicycle and for long distances I use public transport.
