The future of flying cars seems not too far away as Kitty Hawk, the ‘flying car’ company that’s financially backed by Google founder Larry Page, has published the first video of its prototype aircraft.

The company describes the Kitty Hawk Flyer as an ‘all-electric aircraft’ that is designed to operate over water and doesn’t require a pilot’s license to fly.

Kitty Hawk promises people will be able to learn to fly the Flyer ‘in minutes’. A consumer version will be available by the end of this year, the company says.

According to reports, Kitty Hawk hasn’t said exactly what the Flyer is for, nor has it set a price for the retail version. But the company is enticing eager pilots with a $100 three-year membership that offers priority placement on a waiting list, company-branded gear, and exclusive access to a flight simulator and company events. Members will also get a $2,000 discount off the eventual retail price.
