According to the blurb on the front page of the STO site, this is the Shuttle Pet (Like the Del Taco and the Tribble Reward Runabout)... So no, you cannot fly them. However, All you need to do to get a Type 8 Shuttle that you can fly, is go to SB39 and begin the first Reman Featured Mission, "The Vault."
Klingons get the Toron Shuttle on Qo'noS.
Then pick up your (Flyable) Type 8 or Toron from the Shuttle Merchant--You need a Shuttle or Fighter-type vessel to do the mission. But even if you do not complete the mission, you still keep the Shuttle and can fly it when ever you want.
