Wisk Aero’s self-flying air taxi eVTOL is off to a flying start with its first public flight – and you can see it in action in this video.
The fifth-generation air taxi took to the skies at Long Beach’s Festival of Flight in L.A. back in October.
Wisk Aero considered the venture of the electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) a major milestone for the air taxi.
Boasting a range of 144 kilometers (90 miles) and a cruise speed of up to 129 knots, the flight was both quiet and safe.
Consider it the Tesla Robotaxi of the air.
The company revealed in a statement that it had proven that autonomous passenger flights could soon become a reality.
Wisk Aero have conducted more than 1,700 test flights to date.
This includes a number of test flights at Long Beach Airport, to see how the air taxi would perform in a complex commercial airport.
