For years, rumors have swirled about Kitty Hawk, a flying car startup that has been lavishly funded by Google co-founder Larry Page. This makes electric aircraft impractical for long flights, since the batteries for a long flight would be so heavy that the plane couldn't take off. A number of companies are working to develop and commercialize small electric aircraft. Intel CEO Brian Krzanich featured a VTOL aircraft called the Volocopter in his talk at the Consumer Electronics Show in January. A German company called Lilium raised $90 million for its electric VTOL jet last September.
