Generation 6 is here! We’re very excited to share with you the world’s first self-flying, four-seat, #eVTOL air taxi. Learn more about Generation 6 and how it will transform mobility by unlocking safe, all-electric, autonomous, everyday flight for everyone!
Our CEO, Gary Gysin, sat down with Sylvia Pfeifer and Steff Chavez from @FinancialTimes to talk about @WiskAero and the future of the electric air taxi industry. (Paywall)
Together with Boeing, we’re releasing a roadmap for transitioning to a future where automated and uncrewed aircraft can safely carry passengers and cargo in urban and suburban areas. Our concept of operations lays out the technology, regulatory and social recommendations needed to deploy Urban Air Mobility (UAM) in the United States and integrate it into the national airspace system.
Earlier this month, we were honored to attend the first Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) summit held by The White House. This historic event brought together government, industry, and academic experts in an effort to usher in a new era in aviation. Learn more about the progress being made to ensure that the U.S. maintains its global leadership in aviation, and the important role autonomy plays in this effort.
“It is important to let people know how complicated the sustainability process can be. This is not to dissuade them from pursuing sustainability, but to make sure they are properly prepared for what they may encounter. Regardless of the difficulty, it is essential that companies pursue sustainability as this is what is now expected in our industry.” – Daniela Schaff, Wisk Head of Sustainability
Wisk’s groundbreaking work through New Zealand’s Airspace Integration Trial Program is highlighted in this special feature from eVTOL News.
Wisk continues its global expansion with the launch of a new engineering hub in Montreal, Canada, dedicated to the ongoing development of its 6th generation aircraft.
We recently caught up with Rishi Patel, who interned on our Systems Engineering and Integration team. Rishi is a rising senior studying aerospace engineering at Virginia Tech. Like us, he is passionate about AAM and sees it as an essential part of the future of transportation.
Autonomous aerial taxis could transport people around South East Queensland during the 2032 Brisbane Olympic Games. Wisk Aero has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Council of Mayors South East Queensland to develop the service, which has the potential to create hundreds of new jobs.
Air taxi developer Wisk Aero expects this autumn to unveil the production-conforming version of its electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft – the sixth generation of its air taxi – which it will bring through US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification.
Our SCOPE platform leverages data, machine learning, and large-scale GPU-based parallelization, to translate qualitative inputs into quantitative insights. Check out our latest whitepaper for more on how our SCOPE platform allows us to be more thoughtful and comprehensive in our approach to AAM integration.
Wisk is bringing its 5th Generation Aircraft, Cora, to the UK and Australia, with public displays at Farnborough International Airshow and in Brisbane, Australia. The displays are part of Wisk’s broader community engagement efforts, which will include a number of displays and demos over the next few years.

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...
