Kitty Hawk and Boeing are teaming up on flying cars – Roadshow

Curated via Twitter from CNET News’s twitter account….

Right now, Kitty Hawk has two vehicles in its lineup — the Kitty Hawk Flyer, which hovers 10 feet above the ground and goes about 20 miles per hour, and the Cora, an electric two-person air taxi that’s destined to get its inaugural test in New Zealand. Boeing is, well, Boeing.

Kitty Hawk is — as sharp-eyed readers of Roadshow will note — a flying car company founded by Google co-founder Larry Page, and it needs a partner with the expertise and resources to help get its urban flying vehicle dreams off the ground.

Kitty Hawk’s new partnership with Boeing could help get the Cora air taxi project in the air a lot sooner than expected.

Pairing a clever company like Kitty Hawk with a massive company like Boeing could make for a dream team.

"Kitty Hawk was started to advance technology in flight and bring new innovations to life," said Sebastian Thrun, co-founder and CEO of Kitty Hawk.
