Former CEO of Wisk, Gary Gysin, is joining Airspeeder as a board member.
With a distinguished career in the aviation and technology industries, Gysin brings a wealth of experience and expertise to further drive the advancement of eVTOL technology and autonomous flight.
Prior to his retirement in February 2023, Gysin built Wisk into the market-leading self-flying, all-electric, 4-seat air taxi, created the executive and development leadership teams, set the strategic targets for the company, including the entry into service timing and city roll-out, launched the company’s commercial type certified aircraft development program, and closed over $450M in new financing capital. Wisk recently became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Boeing Company.
As Airspeeder continues to pave the way for electric flying car racing, Gary Gysin’s insight and experience is expected to contribute to the company’s growth and success in the rapidly evolving eVTOL industry.
Gary Gysin said: “I am thrilled to join Airspeeder’s board and be a part of this exciting journey towards the future of mobility. Formula 1 racing and autosport racing of all forms has helped spur innovation and safety in consumer vehicles and Airspeeder is leading the way in eVTOL with its electric flying car racing approach. Joining the board aligns perfectly with my passion for aviation and Formula 1.”
Matt Pearson, Airspeeder CEO, added: “Gary’s expertise and forward-thinking approach to aviation and autonomy make him an invaluable addition to our board. We are excited to collaborate with him as we continue to push the boundaries of electric flight and redefine the future of transportation; his perspective on the future of the industry is key as we build a motorsport that has deep resonance with the wider market of OEMs crafting transformational electric aircraft.”
