Cora is assigned by Google to be classified as an air-taxi service. It can carry two passengers , is pilotless, and can travel at speeds of upto 150 kms per hour and travel distances of 100 kms.
KittyHawk's frustration with the US Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) resulted in Kittyhawk making its first flight in New Zealand which was more than willing to test this innovative pilotless two seater all electric plane.

Autonomous flying taxis would revolutionise small distance travel around the world on land or across islands but not across large seas and oceans. Being able to hail an airtaxi ride using a Uber like app by 2020 would redefine air travel around the world.
