Larry Page-backed Kitty Hawk partners with Boeing on flying car development

Curated via Twitter from The Verge’s twitter account….

Kitty Hawk, one of the flying car startups backed by Google founder and Alphabet CEO Larry Page, announced that it’s partnering with Boeing to develop its semi-autonomous flying taxi.

Specifically, Kitty Hawk will work with Boeing on its two-seater Cora flying vehicle, which it hopes to one day use for a semi-autonomous flying taxi service.

After a flurry of announcements last year that included the two-seater Cora, the single-seater Flyer, as well as a partnership with Air New Zealand, Kitty Hawk has been much quieter in recent months.

The ride-sharing company announced that it’s working with five aerospace companies to build craft for the service, including one company that was purchased by Boeing back in 2017.
