ABOUT THE FLYER

        The Kitty Hawk Flyer is a new, all-electric aircraft. It is safe, tested and legal to operate in the United States in uncongested areas under the Ultralight category of FAA regulations. We’ve designed our first version specifically to fly over water. You don’t need a pilot’s license and you’ll learn to fly it in minutes. We publicly revealed the working prototype in April 2017. The official Flyer will be available by the end of the year.


Let's Fly

          Do you dream of flying?

          So do we.

          For years, our team members have dedicated themselves to inventing world-changing technologies. We’ve learned that to create something that the world has never seen, we have to set aside convention and reimagine everything. That spirit of innovation led us to design and build cars that drive themselves, a human-powered helicopter, an operational airplane with flapping wings, and the fastest bicycle on earth.

          When we set out to build the Flyer, we wanted to engineer a personal aircraft that’s easy to fly and accessible for all. We imagined simple controls and advanced electronic capabilities so that you could learn to fly it safely in minutes. We also wanted it to be 100% electric, and take off and land vertically. The Flyer would be so compact that it could fit comfortably in a garage.

          And now it’s here.

          We unveiled our first working prototype of the Flyer in April 2017.  It's an Ultralight vehicle under Part 103 of the FAA regulations, and you don’t need a pilot’s license to operate it.  As you can see it’s a bit rough around the edges, but we were so excited to show you its capabilities that we didn’t want to wait until we finished its design. The consumer version will be available by the end of this year.

          Until then, we invite you to sign up for our Flyer Discovery Membership. You’ll get access to behind-the-scenes action and in-person experiences you’ll hopefully remember for the rest of your life. And you get first dibs at purchasing the Flyer when it is ready.

We hope to meet you soon,
