It is no secret that plenty of companies are working hard to perfect air taxis. Wisk Aero has just introduced an autonomous, all-electric 4-seat vertical takeoff & landing capable air taxi with a range of 90 miles and cruising speed of 120 knots. It can fly 2500 to 4000ft above the ground.
Wisk’s Air Taxi is made with safety in mind. It comes with fully redundant systems and human oversight. This 6th generation Wisk aircraft has a proprietary 12-propeller design. As the company explain, it has
- Proprietary 12 propeller design and boom configuration with improved propulsion systems. Tilting propulsion units in front of the wing and fixed lift units aft of the wing are optimized for range, improved aircraft control and performance, and efficient energy management.
- A raised wing design, extended booms, and increased size and number of propeller blades to improve safety, stability, and the passenger experience, while reducing both in-cabin noise and the aircraft’s overall noise footprint.
