More 'Manned Multi-Copter' Than Flying Car, Final Configuration Remains To Be Seen

A major player in the Google/Alphabet world, Larry Page, has entered the aviation arena with a personal flying machine that is supposed to operate in the 'ultralight' category. Called the 'Kitty Hawk Flyer' -- the new ultralight air vehicle is a new, all-electric aircraft. Page's effort claims the aircraft to be "safe, tested and legal to operate in the United States in uncongested areas under the Ultralight category of FAA regulations. 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.

As part of a 10-day research trip, the team carried out proof-of-concept flights at and over the summits of Guatemala’s Volcán de Fuego and Volcán de Pacaya. A tethered drone was part of the security plan at this year's Boston Marathon.
