Archer Aviation to Unveil “Aircraft Midnight” in November Event

New 4+1 eVTOL Aircraft Set for Public Display Ahead of Projected 2023 Release Date

Archer Aviation announced an open house even for this November, promising to show off Midnight, their first production aircraft. 

The unveiling will allow visitors and press to see its features, specs, and capabilities, from its proprietary powertrain to its interior layout. Midnight was announced last August following the completion of the aircraft’s Preliminary Design Review. Midnight’s specifics remain under wraps, but some of the most important aspects - seating for 4 passengers and 1 pilot, more than 1,000 lbs of payload, and a turnaround time of 10 minutes between flights - have been released ahead of the open house. Attendees will have a chance to see the aircraft put through its paces with a flight of Archer’s full-scale tech demonstrator at their flight test facility. 

Archer has made waves with a series of big-ticket sales of the aircraft to some of the biggest names in the airline industry, like a $10 million pre-delivery payment for 100 Midnights from United Airlines earlier this year. Both United and Stellantis will be participating in the November event. Stellantis has been a “key partner” in Midnight’s development, according to Archer, a vital part of the process required to take the aircraft from scratch-built prototype to mass-produced eVTOL. 

 “From day one, Archer’s goal has been to build a commercially viable business that will revolutionize intra-city travel. We’ve made phenomenal progress in the development of our eVTOL aircraft technology and I am excited to share the aircraft that will deliver on that vision as part of our Open House event,” said Adam Goldstein, Archer’s CEO. 

“Collaboration has always been a cornerstone of our mission,” said Tom Muniz, Archer’s Chief Operating Officer. “Delivering a safe, sustainable revolution in air travel will take our collective vision and expertise, and I can’t wait to stand alongside the Archer team next month to share how together we are bringing our long-term plans to life.”
