Preparing for liftoff: Volocopter and Wisk chart the path to the skies for eVTOLS

I think the biggest misconception—this may not surprise you—is that many folks think that autonomy is a subject for tomorrow. And we believe that it’s ready and is a subject for today. If we want it tomorrow, we have to start today.

Brian Yutko
CEO of Wisk

I strongly believe that the success of the next-generation vehicle clearly depends on the quality of the electric drive train and the battery system—two critical components where we will not rely completely on sub-suppliers.

Dirk Hoke
CEO of Volocopter
