The vehicle, which has been in development for eight years, can take off and land vertically, much like a helicopter. It is electric-powered and will be flown by self-piloting software – with human oversight from the ground.

It has a range of about 100 kilometres and can hit speeds of 150kmh. The prototype can carry two passengers.Cora has the potential to transform spaces like rooftops and parking lots into places to take off right from your neighborhood.
