  1. Autonomous Flights Of Wisk Cora At 2023 EAA Air Venture
    Wisk Cora eVTOL made its first public debut at the ongoing EAA Air Venture in Oshkosh. The aircraft flew unmanned and autonomously at the show on July 25th. Of course it was one of Wisk's technology demonstrators but a fifth generation example. The flight which flew by a line of spectators at the show conducted the standard hover as well as transitions to forward flight as well as 360-degree pedal turns. The movements of the aircraft were monitored by Wisk controllers located all the way in Mountain View, California.
  2. "This demonstration showcases the state of readiness for autonomous technology and electric propulsion," said Wisk CEO Brian Yutko. "Combined with the progress we’re making on type certification for our sixth-generation air taxi, we’re proving that autonomy is possible and it’s happening today. We look forward to launching the first passenger service on an all-electric, autonomous air taxi within this decade." At the show though there is a mock-up of the latest generation (6th generation) at the Wisk booth.
