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.
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’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!
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.
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.
