US-based AAM developer Wisk Aero is continuing its global 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, to be revealed later this year.

Wisk is launching the new hub with existing Montreal-based personnel and intends to grow this presence to approximately 30 employees by the end of the year. The company has been experiencing rapid growth, driven by a tremendous increase in interest for its mission and technology. The new Montreal hub is part of a broader effort to further expand its global team of talent around the world.

“We are excited about the launch of our new Montreal hub,” says senior vp of engineering and programmes Sebastien Vigneron. “Canada's forward-looking approach to aviation and interest in AAM, combined with its pool of experienced aerospace talent, makes 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.”

This move 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 in Georgia, New Zealand and Australia.
