Surf Air

Surf Air Mobility (SAM) is a Los Angeles-based electric aviation and air travel company reinventing flying through the power of electrification.

Surf Air intends to bring electrified aircraft to market at scale in order to substantially reduce the cost and environmental impact of flying.

Surf Air Mobility Corp. was formed alongside Surf Air’s acquisition of aviation marketplace BlackBird in early 2020. The company is headquartered in Los Angeles, California.


Surf Air's immediate focus will be on scaling operations using the Cessna Grand Caravan, which will be the first aircraft to be electrified using SAM’s proprietary technology, hybrid electric powertrains, that will not require charging infrastructure targeted for commercial certification by 2025.


Surf Air continues to create the platform for regional air mobility, bringing together the ecosystem of partners and services necessary to deploy, operate, maintain, and sell electrified aircraft at scale. By creating a single platform that benefits the entire value chain of regional mobility, SAM can better serve operators, airports, OEMs, and the consumer.


Surf Air Jetstream Aviation Capital, Global Emerging Markets Group (GEM), IVP, Troy Capital Partners, NEA, Anthem, Tuscan Holdings, Plus Capital, Base Ventures, and others. The company received a $450M in new financing on Oct 11, 2022. This brings Surf Air's total funding to $563.7M to date.
