Flying taxis are a futuristic solution that were previously confined to science fiction movies, but the Kitty Hawk 'Cora' is here to change all that with a design that could soon revolutionize everyday travel. Boasting a helicopter-like design, the vehicle features 12 wing-based propellers that work effectively to enable vertical takeoffs and smooth operation once it has taken to the sky. The vehicle is capable of reaching flying heights of up to 3,000 feet and could offer a range of up to 62 miles per charge of the internal electric battery.

The Kitty Hawk 'Cora' air taxi identifies the increasing shift towards autonomous plane and helicopter designs as the need for more streamlined transportation solutions becomes more apparent.
