Kitty Hawk, the mysterious flying-car startup funded by the Google cofounder Larry Page, unwrapped a huge update on Wednesday - and it's promising to get people in the air in under an hour.

SAN FRANCISCO: A flying vehicle project backed by Google co-founder Larry Page was closer to take-off on Wednesday, with a model for test flights by aspiring buyers.

With a similar flying auto project, cab aggregator Uber has entered into an agreement with NASA to explore concepts and technologies related to urban air mobility (UAM) for future air transportation in populated areas.

Kitty Hawk's other model, the Cora, is a two-seat vehicle designed as alternative transportation in cities.

While we did get to see an earlier iteration of Flyer previous year the new model is much sleeker, futuristic looking, and generally looks more like a finished product. This enables it to complete a vertical take-off and landing like a helicopter.

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.

Kitty Hawk said at 15m away, it sounds about as loud as a lawnmower, while from 75m away, the volume is on a par with a loud conversation.

"Our immediate priority is to invite small groups of people - customers, influencers, media and community members - to experience the freedom of flight here in our newly opened training facility".

Test flights by first timers take place over water, with top speeds limited at 20mph and the altitude restricted to no more than 3m (10ft).

The uncovered cockpit appeared big enough for one person, with their head poking out as it might from a go-kart. The personal vehicles are available for pre-order.

According to CNN, Kitty Hawk tried out various methods for controlling the craft, including a steering wheel, video game controllers, and boat throttles but found that a joystick was the most comfortable to use.
