After announcing Cora in 2018, we’re getting closer to a world where we can free people from traffic. Find out what we’ll be doing in 2019 and where we’re expanding.
Almost six months ago, we introduced you to Cora — one of the world’s first electric, autonomous air taxis. It was a thrill to share our vision of a future where your life is connected by the power of everyday flight.
Every revolution has a story. The right people, the right time and the right place coming together for something special. In 1903, it was the Wright Brothers on a field in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The very same year, Richard Pearse took to the sky in New Zealand.
For more than a decade, we’ve been designing, testing and flying 5 generations of aircraft, making Wisk an industry-recognized leader in eVTOL flight. However, we have always celebrated these milestones internally and have never shared them publicly. We’re changing that. Check out our new Journey to Everyday Flight video series that highlights the milestones and industry-firsts that we’ve accomplished as part of our broader mission to make everyday flight a reality for everyone.
Wisk, a leader in autonomous UAM flight and the company behind the first all-electric, self-flying air taxi in the U.S., has released a new white paper focused on advanced air mobility (AAM) infrastructure and the critical role that small to mid-size airports will play in the launch and long-term success of the AAM industry.

Autonomy is the key to unlocking scale in Urban Air Mobility. We recently sat down to talk with the global management consultancy of European heritage, Roland Berger, to talk about our self-flying first approach, investor appeal, and the future of Urban Air Mobility.
This summer we welcomed six talented interns to Wisk who worked across a variety of departments and work streams. Wisk Intern & Zed Factor Fellow Simran Dhoju shared her reflections on her time with us and her advice for future Wisk interns. Read on to learn more about her experience.
There is no silver bullet for achieving social acceptance, particularly for something as complex as riding in an advanced autonomous aircraft. So without an engagement rule book to follow to build legitimacy, credibility and trust with stakeholders, we’ve had to develop and tailor a specific approach for AAM while also staying true to our company values and philosophy.
Wisk is excited to welcome two industry leaders to our team: Jonathan Lovegren (Head of Autonomy) and Sumita Tandon (Head of Software). Their expertise and more than 40 years of combined experience add to our long-established history and will help us realize our vision of safe, all-electric, everyday flight.
Wisk’s partnership with NASA continues our decade of innovation in Advanced Air Mobility. We’re proud to be selected as an AAM industry partner by NASA and we are enthusiastic about engaging with industry leaders supporting the National Campaign (NC-1) and its objective of advancing AAM flight, airspace, and operations infrastructure.
Everyday flight is coming soon, but what about everyday landing? Our latest blog outlines how we’re evaluating future vertiport sites and our commitment to ensuring the safest, most accessible and most reliable air taxi service for future passengers!
