The Kitty Hawk Flyer is a sort of a flying car except it’s not a car at all – it’s much more like a flying ATV, which is probably more legitimately all-terrain than most. Linguistics aside, it’s a very cool piece of tech that’s backed by Google co-founder Larry Page, and it’s already in the ‘working prototype’ phase of development.

Business Insider got a peek behind the curtain at what it’s like to source and train test pilots for the first Kitty Hawker Flyers that can actually fly, and Kitty Hawk provided a clip featuring interviews with some of its demonstration staff. These people were selected from a range of backgrounds for their very particular skill sets, which included not just piloting know-how, but also a general love for sports and aerial activities like paragliding.
