Wisk brings autonomous air taxi to heart of Washington DC

Wisk Aero, a leading Advanced Air Mobility company, is bringing autonomous flight to Washington D.C. for the 2023 U.S. Chamber of Commerce Global Aerospace Summit, on September 12 and 13.

Wisk will have one of its 6th Generation, autonomous, electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) air taxi mockups on display in the rotunda of the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center.

Additionally, Wisk CEO Brian Yutko will be joining a panel of industry leaders to discuss the future of air mobility and the importance of autonomy in realizing the full potential and benefits of this new form of transportation.

“We’re thrilled to showcase our autonomous technology by bringing our 6th Generation Air Taxi to the heart of D.C.,” said Brian Yutko, CEO of Wisk.

“The Global Aerospace Summit convenes key stakeholders for important discussions to progress advanced air mobility.

“We look forward to being part of this discussion and emphasizing the critical role autonomy plays in safety and maintaining U.S. leadership in aviation.”

Wisk’s 6th Generation air taxi is the first-ever candidate for FAA certification of an autonomous, all-electric, vertical takeoff and landing aircraft designed for passenger transport.

The company is working closely with the FAA on its previously submitted type certification.
