Former Wisk CEO Gary Gysin Joins Airspeeder

Aug 23 2023


Airspeeder, a leader in flying car racing technology (eVTOLs), is excited to announce that Gary Gysin, former CEO of Wisk, is joining the company as a board member.


With a distinguished career in the aviation and technology industries, Gary brings a wealth of experience and expertise to further drive the advancement of electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) technology and autonomous flight.

Gary most recently was the founding CEO of Wisk Aero, a joint venture between the Boeing Company and Larry Page’s Kittyhawk. Prior to Gary’s retirement in February of 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.



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.
