The suggestion is clear: please fly this thing over water, where at least if you crash you've got a chance.

The all-electric vehicle uses a lithium-polymer battery, and for now can only run for around 20 minutes on a single charge.

The device has small dimensions - 4,2 2,6 m - and intuitive control.

For hundred years people have been dreaming of flying cars. "We strive to give people the freedom of flight, so we will work with partners to make entire fleets of such vehicles in places around the world", - say the creators.

Looking very different fromthe prototype it showed off just over a year ago, the redesigned Flyer looks like a cross between a drone, an F1 auto, and a sea plane. According to the Kitty Hawk website, Cora is being is being testing in New Zealand, where the company is working with the government, businesses and local communities.

The "future" might seem closer than ever with Kitty Hawk which has answered most of our queries about flying cars.

The company has been testing this vehicle for a while now and it has finally unveiled it for individual customers to try the flying auto themselves. Powered by 10 independent lift fans, it can take off and land practically anywhere.

Kitty Hawk said that at 15 meters (50 feet) away, it sounded about as lound as a lawn mower, while from 250 feet away the volume was on par with a loud conversation.

The aircraft is designed for one person, it can be airborne 12-20 minutes.

Because of the way in which is built and because it will be used only over water, the Flyer falls under the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) regulations for ultralight aircraft, which means no pilot's license is needed to be able to fly it. In terms of safety, Kitty Hawk has now chose to limit altitude to between 3 to 10 ft (0.9 to 3 m), and maximum speed to 20 miles per hour (32 km/h).

Another flyer called Cora is also under development and is a little closer to the dream flying auto project.
