Wisk Aero, a leading Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) company and developer of an all-electric, self-flying air taxi in the US, is continuing its expansion with the launch of a new engineering hub in Montreal, Canada.

The hub will be dedicated to the ongoing development of its sixth generation aircraft, which will be revealed later this year.

Wisk is launching the new hub with existing Montreal-based personnel and intends to grow this presence to approximately thirty employees by the end of the year.

Global expansion

The company’s new Montreal hub is part of a broader effort to further expand its global team of industry-leading talent around the world.

“We are excited about the launch of our new Montreal hub,” said Sebastien Vigneron, senior vice president of engineering and programmes.

“Canada’s forward-looking approach to aviation and interest in AAM, combined with its pool of experienced aerospace talent, make it an ideal location for Wisk as we expand our global footprint. This expansion highlights the increasing global interest in our mission to bring safe, everyday flight to everyone, and we look forward to continuing that mission with support from our new Montreal-based hub.”

The announcement of the new Montreal hub follows Wisk’s recent expansion into Australia. In addition to Montreal and its headquarters and facilities around the San Francisco Bay Area, Wisk now has a presence in Atlanta (Georgia), New Zealand and Australia.
