Kitty Hawk
 
The Kitty Hawk Flyer is just one flying vehicle being worked on by the Larry Page-backed startup. Page has reportedly invested more than $US100 million into Kitty Hawk and its other division, Zee Aero. Both organisations have registered to test a number of different aircraft, from gliders to sailplanes.
 
The goal of Kitty Hawk and Zee Aero is to one day reinvent personal transportation. Both divisions have roughly 100 employees combined. The CEO of Kitty Hawk is Sebastian Thrun, cofounder of Udacity and the father of Google’s self-driving car project.
 
The Kitty Hawk focus on over-water flights is intentional - it's meant to reassure Federal Aviation Administration officials worried that unlicensed pilots will be flying over populated areas. The company wants to work with the FAA to enable more ambitious vehicles, but it would rather play it safe in the early stages.
