Wisk, the U.S. leader in autonomous advanced air mobility (AAM) flight, will be displaying its fifth generation, self-flying, electric vertical take off and landing (eVTOL) air taxi during CoMotion LA (Nov. 16 – 18).

Wisk’s Chief Marketing Officer, Becky Tanner, will also be presenting a keynote, entitled “Those Who Leap.” The keynote, taking place on Wednesday, November 17th, will focus on how, by taking a leap, imagination becomes possibility and ideas become inventions and innovations that advance all of humankind.

“We’re extremely excited to be an Impact partner for CoMotion again this year,” said Tanner. “Throughout history, there have been advancements that have fundamentally changed our lives and pushed us into the future with a leap. We are on the edge of another great leap- one that will take us from congested, ground-based, fossil-fuel-driven transportation, to cleaner, all-electric, everyday flight.”

CoMotion LA will be the first time that Wisk has publicly displayed its eVTOL air taxi in the U.S. To date, the company’s fleet of fifth generation aircraft has been reserved exclusively for testing purposes and has been accessible to the broader public only through flight videos and photos. CoMotion LA marks the start of an enhanced public engagement effort, including both demonstrations and displays, designed to bring stakeholders along on the journey, see firsthand the safety of the technology, and experience the future of mobility.

Tanner added:
“We are incredibly excited to be displaying our autonomous eVTOL air taxi for the first time in the U.S., and to kick off our broader public engagement effort. We understand that the journey to everyday flight for everyone is not one that we can take alone and we are proud to share with the public what we get the privilege to experience every day.”

Wisk is focused on delivering safe, everyday flight for everyone. Since 2010, the company has successfully designed and developed five generations of eVTOL aircraft (currently developing its sixth generation aircraft) and completed more than 1,500 test flights.
