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!
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.
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.

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.
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.
Wisk Aero Secures $450 Million from The Boeing Company to Advance Certified Autonomous Electric Flight
Wisk has secured $450 million in funding from The Boeing Company, making it one of the most well-funded AAM companies in the world. Combined with previous funding, this investment reinforces Wisk’s strong position as a privately-backed AAM leader and highlights the strength of Wisk’s strategic partnership with Boeing and their collaboration on critical technology development.
