"Making Flyer accessible, which is what we do at our Lake Las Vegas training facility, helps more people experience the freedom and possibilities of vehicles of the future", a Kitty Hawk spokeswoman told AFP. However, the company states that the Flyer is only to be used over water and uncongested areas, so don't imagine you'll be using one to skip the traffic in your daily commute just yet.
Test flights by first-timers were over water, with the top speed limited to 32 kilometers per hour (20 mph) and the altitude to no more than three meters.
The start-up teased the Flyer in a demo video a year ago, and is now nearing public roll out.
"Flyer is created to be easy to fly and flown for recreational purposes over water and uncongested areas", the website said.
The uncovered cockpit appears to be big enough for one person. The company said it's the first step in making flying "part of everyday life".
This latest model by Kitty Hawk has been designed, built, and tested by a team led by 2013 Sikorsky prize victor and Guinness world record holder Todd Reichert.
