FAA Approves G-1 Archer Certification Basis

The Company’s eVTOL Climbs One Step Closer To Type Certification

Archer Aviation has revealed that the FAA G-1 Issue Paper: Certification Basis has been approved and signed, which is one step closer towards FAA Type Certification of its eVTOL aircraft. The announcement took place on September 7th.

The G-1 Certification Basis specifies the aircraft's airworthiness and Environmental Standards required for FAA Type Certification. Now, Archer can move ahead with finalizing the G-2 Issue Paper with the FAA which will certify the means of compliance, which they have been working on since earlier this year.

Archer’s Head of Certification Eric Wright speaks excitedly about the milestone, “We’re certainly proud to have hit this historic milestone for Archer. Obtaining the G-1 Certification Basis is a significant step forward towards Archer’s and the eVTOL industry’s goal of changing how people will move around urban environments,” Wright says. “This is an exciting time to be a part of the aviation industry as we work to electrify the skies, and we look forward to continuing to partner with the FAA on revolutionizing aircraft transportation.”

The co-founders and co-CEO’s of Archer share in the enthusiastic energy, looking forward to the future.

“Certification continues to be the shining light at the end of our design and development tunnel,” said Brett Adcock, co-founder and co-CEO of Archer. “While there is still significant work ahead of us, we now have a basis agreed upon with the FAA that will allow us to better focus our efforts on our goal of obtaining certification on an efficient timeline.”

“Our team is pragmatic and realistic about the steps towards launching our urban air mobility network. The aircraft is just one part of the business Archer is building, and we will never lose sight of that final goal,” said Adam Goldstein, co-founder and co-CEO of Archer. “We use accomplishments like the G-1 certification basis to measure our success based on the broader picture of an established urban air mobility network and wide technology adoption. The future is certainly looking bright!”
