GOOGLE GURU PAGE TESTS FLYING TAXIS IN NEW ZEALAND: CORA ELECTRIC POWERED AIR TAXI IN FLIGHT

GOOGLE GURU PAGE TESTS FLYING TAXIS IN NEW ZEALAND: CORA ELECTRIC POWERED AIR TAXI IN FLIGHT. Pilot-less flying taxis are being tested in New Zealand as part of a project backed by Google co-founder Larry Page that supporters say will revolutionise personal transport. Known as Cora, the electric aircraft has a dozen small lift rotors on its wings, making it capable of vertical take-off and landing like a helicopter. But developers say it is much quieter, pollution free, emission free vehicle that flies dependably meaning it could transport passengers in urban areas using rooftops and car parks as landing pads. The computers operate independently as a safety measure and the aircraft can deploy a parachute if anything goes wrong. Photo courtesy Agencies
