Our next pod­cast episode is live! This week, we spoke to Mick Kowitz, CEO of RYSE Aero Tech­nolo­gies, which is cur­rent­ly design­ing and devel­op­ing its RYSE RECON ultra­light.

It will pre­dom­i­nate­ly be used for farm­ing, with the com­pa­ny this week launch­ing a equi­ty crowd­fund­ing cam­paign in order to raise $5 mil­lion in com­mon stock.

Mick then shares his vision for the com­pa­ny and its ultra­light — the RYSE RECON, while giv­ing an update on the roadmap to-date. Mick also talks about how the RECON will fit into the emerg­ing Advanced Air Mobil­i­ty mar­ket in par­tic­u­lar, and gives his thoughts on the pub­lic and soci­etal accep­tance of eVTOL air­craft. He then talk about the fly­ing days the com­pa­ny has planned for lat­er this year.
