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.
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 Aero and Skyports are partnering to integrate autonomous, electric, vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft operations at vertiports and other ground-based infrastructure. The partnership marks the first collaboration between a vertiport developer-operator and an autonomous eVTOL developer in the U.S. The partnership has released a first-of-its-kind ConOps, which identifies how autonomous eVTOL aircraft and operators will integrate with vertiports, including interactions with Providers of Services for UAM.
To celebrate Women’s History Month, we are spotlighting just a few of the talented women of Wisk. These women have dedicated their professional careers to creating a future where autonomous advanced air mobility is accessible and open to everyone. Aviation is a team...
In 2017, we made aviation history by becoming the first company in the U.S. to fly an entirely self-flying electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) air taxi designed for passenger use. However, autonomous flight has been part of our story from day one. Increased...
Emerging air taxi developers are eventually planning to fly their fleets autonomously—without a pilot on board to guide decision making. Wisk’s piloting system will be based on “a foundational, deterministic, rule-based approach to flight—akin to a Boeing 737 that’s on autopilot for most of the flight. It’s largely the same process and approach as developing and certifying an autopilot system.”
Wisk is partnering with Long Beach to make Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) a reality in Southern California. Through the partnership, Wisk and Long Beach Economic Partnership will create a working group to focus on evaluating, planning, and implementing AAM services, with a focus on autonomy. The partnership will also conduct an Economic Impact study to measure the economic benefits to the community and overall economy from AAM operations in Southern California.
