Archer’s Midnight set for first US public display this month
Archer’s Midnight aircraft will be displayed publicly in the US for the first time this month as it features at the US Chamber of Commerce’s 2023 Aerospace Summit.
The aircraft will be joined by Adam Goldstein, Archer’s founder and CEO, and Billy Nolen, Archer’s chief safety officer at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, D.C. on September 12-13. The two executives will discuss Archer and the wider industry’s progress toward the beginning of commercial operations scheduled for 2025 and reaching scaled operations by 2028.
“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 whole of the U.S. government as well as the collaboration across the industry, including from mobility leaders like United Airlines, Boeing and Stellantis.”
The Midnight made its international debut earlier this year at the Paris Air Show. The last time an eVTOL was on display at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center was in 2019 at the Uber Elevate Conference.
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 Honorable Glenn Youngkin, Governor, Commonwealth of Virginia and many more.
