Cora, an autonomous flying vehicle by Silicon Valley Firm Kitty Hawk, has been approved for trials in Christchurch, New Zealand, reported the New Zealand Herald.
The all-electric aircraft takes off vertically, similar to a helicopter and can carry two people. According to CNN, Cora can fly at speeds of over 150 km per hour and operates autonomously. The aircraft also has a travel range of over 100 km.
According to Stuff.co.nz, it's hoped that Cora will operate commercially in New Zealand within three to six years.
