Archer to showcase eVTOL progress towards 2025 commercialisation at US Chamber of Commerce Global Aerospace Summit

Archer claims it is set to take cen­tre stage at the US Cham­ber of Commerce’s Glob­al Aero­space Sum­mit in Wash­ing­ton DC, show­cas­ing the eVTOL air­craft industry’s progress towards 2025 com­mer­cial­i­sa­tion.

This marks the first-ever pub­lic dis­play of Archer’s Mid­night air­craft in the US, hav­ing made its inter­na­tion­al debut ear­li­er this year at the Paris Air Show. The last time an eVTOL air­craft was on dis­play at the Ronald Rea­gan Build­ing and Inter­na­tion­al Trade Cen­ter was in 2019 at the Uber Ele­vate Con­fer­ence.

Archer’s founder and CEO, Adam Gold­stein, and for­mer FAA Admin­is­tra­tor, Bil­ly Nolen, who is now Archer’s Chief Safe­ty Offi­cer, will dis­cuss Archer and the larg­er eVTOL air­craft industry’s progress towards the goal of begin­ning com­mer­cial oper­a­tions in 2025 and reach­ing scaled oper­a­tions by 2028.

Archer’s Mid­night eVTOL air­craft will be on dis­play for gov­ern­ment and aero­space lead­ers attend­ing the Wash­ing­ton event as the Cham­ber of Com­merce show­cas­es the ongo­ing US com­mit­ment to main­tain­ing its glob­al lead­er­ship in avi­a­tion.

“This year’s theme for the Glob­al Aero­space Sum­mit, ‘Inno­vat­ing the Skies, Con­nect­ing the World,’ per­fect­ly describes what Archer and our indus­try is on the doorstep of achiev­ing,” said Archer’s founder and CEO Adam Gold­stein.

“The future of urban air mobil­i­ty is upon us thanks to the strong sup­port from the US gov­ern­ment as well as the col­lab­o­ra­tion across indus­try, includ­ing mobil­i­ty lead­ers like Unit­ed Air­lines, Boe­ing and Stel­lan­tis.”

The Glob­al Aero­space Sum­mit is the pre­mier event in the space and avi­a­tion indus­tries, bring­ing togeth­er gov­ern­ment lead­ers and indus­try experts from across the world.

In addi­tion to Archer’s Gold­stein and Nolen, speak­ers include Unit­ed Air­lines CEO, Scott Kir­by, Air­bus CEO, Guil­laume Fau­ry, Amer­i­can Air­lines CEO, Robert Isom, The Hon­ourable Glenn Youngkin, Gov­er­nor, Com­mon­wealth of Vir­ginia and more.

Last month, the US Air Force (USAF) signed con­tracts worth $142 mil­lion with Archer for deliv­ery of up to six Mid­night Air­craft from the US Marine Corps (USMC).
