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).
