Archer Aims to Revolutionize Air Travel With Its Midnight eVTOL Air Taxi

Archer Aviation is one of countless aerospace start-ups promising to revolutionize air travel by building and operating new electric-vertical-takeoff-and-landing (eVTOL) aircraft. The company’s four-seat eVTOL air taxi, called Midnight, is on track to achieve FAA type certification and begin transporting passengers in the U.S. as early as 2025. In partnership with United Airlines, Archer will start out flying customers between airports and city centers. As Archer expands its network of flight routes in the following years, it will also drastically ramp up production of its Midnight aircraft, with plans calling for 2,300 aircraft to be built per year at its new factory in Georgia. FutureFlight caught up with Archer’s chief operating officer Tom Muniz at Heli-Expo 2023 in Atlanta to discuss how the company plans to execute its ambitious plans.
