Cora Cora

is a self-flying taxi developed by Kitty Hawk, a startup backed by Google's co-founder and billionaire Larry Page. Cora is an all-electric 12-rotor plane-drone hybrid that can take off vertically like a drone, but then uses a propeller at the back to fly at up to 177km/hr for around 100km at a time. With three independent flight-computers, the plane can self-navigate even if one computer goes down, and in case things really go wrong, there is an emergency parachute to land it safely without using the fans.


Manufactured by Workhorse Group, this personal hybrid helicopter is designed perfectly for safe and easy flight. Equipped with 8 independent motors each driving a single carbon fiber propeller, a backup battery power system, and a ballistic emergency parachute, the SureFly provides unparalleled safety for a personal aircraft. With curb weight of 500kg and maximum takeoff weight of 680kg this vehicle can carry a pilot and passenger or pilot and cargo and travel at 113km/h top speed.
