Boeing has entered into a strategic partnership with Kitty Hawk Corporation to collaborate on future efforts to advance safe urban air mobility.

The partnership brings together the innovation of Kitty Hawk’s Cora division with Boeing’s scale and aerospace expertise.

“Working with a company like Kitty Hawk brings us closer to our goal of safely advancing the future of mobility,” said Steve Nordlund, vice president and general manager of Boeing NeXt, an organization that is laying the foundation for a next-generation mobility ecosystem in which autonomous and piloted vehicles can safely coexist. “We have a shared vision of how people, goods and ideas will be transported in the future, as well as the safety and regulatory ecosystem that will underpin that transportation.”

Kitty Hawk Corp., headquartered in Mountain View, California, builds electric transportation solutions and is named after the beaches of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina where the Wright Brothers took flight for the first time in 1903.

 The company’s portfolio of vehicles includes Cora, a two-person air taxi and Flyer, a vehicle for personalized flight.

“Kitty Hawk was started to advance technology in flight and bring new innovations to life,” said Sebastian Thrun, co- founder and CEO of Kitty Hawk. “I am excited about our companies working together to accelerate making safe electric flight a reality.”
