Wisk, the U.S. leader in autonomous advanced air mobility (AAM) flight, will be displaying its fifth generation, self-flying, electric vertical take off and landing (eVTOL) air taxi during CoMotion LA (Nov. 16 – 18). Wisk’s Chief Marketing Officer, Becky Tanner, will also be presenting a keynote, entitled “Those Who Leap.”
To mark International Day of Climate Action, Wisk’s Daniela Schaff shares her point of view on the future of Sustainability in the AAM industry.
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.

UAM/AAM infrastructure has become an increasing focus for the industry. We shared our views on this topic with Aviation Today – learn more about how we’re approaching infrastructure in this latest article.
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.
As part of their Future Thoughts series, our CEO, Gary Gysin, sat down with the Airspeeder team to talk about advanced air mobility and the future of autonomous 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!
Earlier this month, Observer interviewed Wisk’s CEO Gary Gysin, where he discussed the potential of urban eVTOLs and the roles of corporate backers, regulators, as well as competitors, in making air taxis a reality.

Wisk Aero, a company that spun out of Kitty Hawk in 2019 with backing from Mr. Page and Boeing, is already testing a two-seat vehicle, and it is building a larger autonomous air taxi that may have more seats. Many believe this is how flying cars will ultimately operate: as a taxi, without a pilot. In the long run, they argue, finding and paying pilots would be far too expensive.
Despite the potential of general aviation, as a pilot I’ve been able to share its benefits with only a handful of friends. Only 1 in 500 Americans have overcome the many obstacles to becoming a pilot, and once licensed, pilots face the additional challenge of having access to aircraft.
Wisk to Provide and Operate up to 30 Electric Vertical Aircraft for Key Blade Urban Air Mobility Routes
Wisk announces arrangement to provide and operate up to 30 electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft that will be deployed on Blade’s U.S. network. Blade and Wisk will also form a working group to engage with regulators and municipalities to pursue charging infrastructure and next generation air traffic control systems.
The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) has formed a new Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) Roundtable, a forum for high-level policy planning with sector leaders, to chart a course for the integration of AAM technologies into the nation’s airspace and infrastructure.
Anna Kominik, Wisk’s Asia Pacific Region Director talks about how our participation in the Take Charge event in Christchurch, New Zealand is part of our larger, ongoing effort to not only build an aircraft that safely flies, but also work with communities, businesses, and government leaders on how best to shape a new eco-friendly environment in transportation.
