Skyryse, bringing the accessibility of flight through a highly automated and touchscreen flight control system, has opened the doors to its new El Segundo headquarters in California. As the company continues to hire aviation and aerospace talent and charges toward certification, it has outgrown its 9,000-square-foot office space and opens its doors to a new state-of-the-art workspace in El Segundo, widely recognized as the aerospace capital of the world.
After quickly building a top-notch aviation engineering team and implementing a highly experienced leadership organization, Skyryse grew from 30 employees at the beginning of 2022 and closed the year with 90 employees. As the company continues to scale development and secures a supplemental type certificate for its one-of-a-kind airframe-agnostic flight deck, the company has opened a second state-of-the-art development facility near its headquarters in El Segundo.
"We are growing at a rapid clip and continue to look for top engineering talent to join our mission of reducing general aviation accidents, making flight simpler and safer, and revolutionizing the future of transportation," said Dr. Mark Groden, founder and CEO of Skyryse. "We've put a lot of thought into creating an environment that communicates our vision of bringing the freedom and joy of safer flight right in the middle of one of the largest aerospace hubs in the U.S."
In October of 2021, Skyryse closed a $205M Series B funding round led by Fidelity Management & Research Company and Monashee Investment Management, which Skyryse says is the largest Series B fundraise in aerospace history.
