Government partners with Wisk for passenger trial of self-flying air taxi in Canterbury
Published: 04 February 2020
Today the Government announced it has signed a memorandum of understanding with urban air mobility company Wisk (the new trading name of Zephyr Airworks) to support a world-first passenger transport trial of the company’s all-electric, self-flying air taxi ‘Cora’ in Canterbury.
In October 2019, the Government announced that Wisk was the first industry partner to join the programme to define the scope of a passenger-transport focussed trial.
With the agreement in place, planning for a passenger transport trial in Canterbury is underway. The trial will commence after Cora receives certification by the New Zealand Civil Aviation Authority.
