ACHR
The Dawn of a New Era

Introducing Midnight – Electric Vertical
Takeoff & Landing Aircraft

Watch Unveil
Battery & Engine Innovation

Purpose Built,
Proprietary Technology
By Our World-Class
Engineering Team

We’re innovating in key areas of the technologies that enable the commercialization of eVTOL aircraft, such as the powertrain.

We’re building a proprietary electric powertrain system that is significantly more power dense and higher efficiency than what is in the market today while maintaining a long service life. The powertrain system will be powered by existing mass production cells that are designed with the highest safety standards in mind at both the cell and pack level.

A Diversified Commercialization Strategy

Our goal is deploy
6000 aircraft by 2030

1. ARCHER DIRECT SALES

First Customer, United Airlines, Purchases 100 eVTOL Aircraft

Our planned OEM line of business. We expect this will provide meaningful cash flows to help finance build out of our UAM network. The early go to market strategy is to launch “trunk” routes from airport to city center with partners like United as there is known demand and strong willingness.

2. URBAN AIR MOBILITY

Electric Aerial Ridesharing
with Archer Air

Our planned aerial ride sharing line of business. This initial phase is expected to rely on existing and retrofitted infrastructure. As demand scales, we expect to collaborate with aligned development partners to build high throughput take off and landing infrastructure.
