Kitty Hawk CEO Sebastian Thrun told TechCrunch “The calculus here is that this has to be socially acceptable for people,” while demonstrating Heaviside’s capability to fly overhead without being any louder than an office air conditioner. It’s also intended to support both manual and autonomous flight, although regulatory approval could be quite a way off.
