CORA AIR TAXI IS MORE FUN THAN A TESLA UBER

Even more fun than a Tesla Uber; Cora is an air taxi that combines electric power, self-piloting software and vertical take-off to pioneer an entirely new way to fly. Cora is the beginning of a journey towards everyday flight, where air travel will be woven into our daily lives.

Every revolution has a story. The right people, the right time and the right place coming together for something special. In 1903, it was the Wright Brothers on a field in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.

In the 21st Century it is of course a group of Silicon Valley engineers with Google money behind them, now finalizing Cora development in New Zealand.

Cora combines electric power, an advanced autopilot and vertical take-off to pioneer an entirely new, safe, clean and quiet way to fly.  No-one needs to learn to be a pilot, Cora uses self-flying software with expert human supervision so that you can sit back and enjoy the ride. In a few years, flying across town could be as easy as hopping an Uber and much more scenic.

Some day ... soon.
