The Kitty Hawk Flyer is a new, all-electric aircraft. 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.
However, Kitty Hawk – named after the town where the Wright brothers first tested the aeroplane – is positioning its Flyer as a vehicle for the joyrider. Restricted to running only over water, it is operated manually, and can apparently be flown by inexperienced riders after only a few minutes of instruction.
