Fueled by Culture

Whisper Aero is a team built with purpose. Founded on our core principles and values, we believe the way we work together is a critical advantage propelling us forward and empowering us to compete with the biggest names shaping the future of propulsion. Our culture dynamically blends ambition, creativity, and camaraderie to fuel our success.


Distill the Details

Complexity arises when solving hard problems. We draw insightful conclusions from our work to produce elegant products and processes. We simplify our conclusions into intuitive learnings so that we all understand clearly.

Set Expectations

Clarity enables productivity. Whether for work or for rest, we set clear expectations to garner support towards our goals.


Do More with Less

Our funding is limited. We look for opportunities to be resourceful, inventive, and self-sufficient to make the most of our resources.

Ruthlessly Prioritize

Time is unreplenishable, yet continuously spent. We value time as the most limited resource and prioritize ruthlessly to deliver impact. We filter potential products and processes to focus on the ones that matter most.

Problem Solving

Embrace First Principles

First principles form the basis of reasoned action. We embrace them to define critical paths, maintain focus, execute rapidly, and drive success.

Think End-to-End

The best products have been well-considered throughout. From product strategy to multidisciplinary design to tool development, we examine the upstream, the downstream, and every step in between.


Be an Owner

We are each stewards of our collective success. We take initiative to meet expectations of us as individuals and as a company, and never disregard a task too small.

Embody Safety

We are responsible for the health and safety of ourselves and our stakeholders. We assess the risks in all aspects of our products and processes and we plan ahead to mitigate the likelihood and severity of consequences.

Fortify Foundations

Strong companies are built from strong foundations. We make time to develop our team, grow our knowledge base, organize our facilities, refactor our tools, and document our methods to ensure repeatability and scalability.

Work Environment

Aim to Win

We are here because we believe we can change the world. We engage our work with a determination to succeed and to make the seemingly impossible, possible.

Disagree and Commit

We are not afraid to challenge and be challenged by each other. We respect dissenting opinions but also recognize the need to converge toward a final decision, and we commit to the decision as if it were our own.

Foster Creative Genius

Hard problems require creative solutions. We encourage challenging prior assumptions and thinking outside the box. We support each other in bringing new ideas to life.

Lead and Be Led

Everyone has strengths and weaknesses. We lead others where we are strong and are led by others where we are weak. We teach without judgement and learn without shame.

Why we love Tennessee

Tennessee offers a unique blend of natural beauty, vibrant culture, and a welcoming community. From the stunning landscapes of the Great Smoky Mountains to the rich musical heritage of Nashville, Tennessee provides an active and fulfilling place to live for our team.

No income tax, great outdoors.

Much more than just country music

Our corporate office is based in Nashville, a city home to a growing community of entrepreneurs and creators. Plus Nashville’s live music and entertainment scene has something for everyone.

Small town vibes, big city connections

Enjoy the quiet life or hop in a car for a quick city visit. Located near the Great Smoky Mountains, our Crossville campus is central to three of Tennessee’s most popular cities: Knoxville/Pigeon Forge, Chattanooga, and Nashville.

Incubating our electric future

Together with Tennessee Tech, we’re standing up a 130,000 sq ft facility where we’ll be manufacturing and testing our first propulsors. Onsite the facility will also house the state’s largest low speed wind tunnel and cutting-edge supercomputers.

Lots to explore

No matter where you are in Tennessee, you'll have access to outdoor hiking, lakes, waterfalls, caves, and more.

For fans of all kinds

Professional sports teams, including the Tennessee Titans (football),  Nashville Predators (ice hockey), Nashville Soccer Club, and Nashville Sounds (baseball)

Artists abound

Tennessee features a vibrant art scene. From the Frist Art Museum, to the Grand Ole Opry, to the Cumberland County Playhouse, there's a little something for everyone.
