Ampaire is a tech startup based in California that is leading the charge in electric aviation. We're on a mission to provide the world with electric commercial flights that are affordable, quiet, and environmentally conscious. We're building the future of air travel, are reimagining the way people and their things fly. We are a practical and lean start-up that quickly iterates and learns, and this has allowed Ampaire to be among the first of the electric aviation companies to actually fly. We currently are flying what we believe to be the world’s largest electrified aircraft by weight and capacity.
We’re located at the intersection of aerospace and electric vehicles, right next to SpaceX and Tesla at Hawthorne Airport in Los Angeles County. As part of Starburst, the world’s top aerospace accelerator, we have access to an international support network. We're proud to have won multiple international awards as a Top Aerospace Startup (Hello Tomorrow, Paris), Top Electrification Startup (New Mobility Challenge, Los Angeles), and IEEE N3XT Stars. We've also been featured in Aviation Week for our creative business approach and early success. Our talented team brings a diverse background from top institutions including: Caltech, Stanford, USC, Northrop Grumman, SpaceX, Virgin Orbit, and General Motors.
