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.”
