Welcome to Wisk

What Makes Us Wisk

We believe in a world where less time getting there means more time being there for the moments that matter. Our journey began with Kitty Hawk in 2010, and it’s where our self-flying air taxi was born. Since we first took to the skies, we’ve logged approximately 1,500 test flights with full-scale aircraft.

Wisk was established in 2019 as a joint venture between The Boeing Company and Kitty Hawk Corporation, two leaders in aviation who are shaping the future of mobility. Headquartered in Mountain View, CA with locations in Atlanta, GA and New Zealand, our vision of delivering safe, everyday flight for everyone is closer than ever to becoming reality.
