  1. Production 'Midnight' eVTOL To Be Unveiled In November
    Archer Aviation will be unveiling 'Midnight', its first production eVTOL. In just under a month's time -November 16th- the company will be revealing Midnight to the world at an Open House event on the aforementioned date. It isn't the first time we are hearing about Midnight as the company announced its pending existence in August. More critical information about the production version of this Archer Aviation eVTOL will be released at the Open House.
  2. For now we know that Midnight will be able to carry four passengers and the pilot which would be within the 1,000 plus pounds of useful load. With a range (utilizing today's available battery technologies) of 60 miles and a speed of 150 mph the company expects to have a charging turnaround time of 10 minutes between flights. However, this could change as breakthroughs in battery storage density improves. This will allow for faster charging times as well as longer range.
  3. On November 16th persons who attend the Open House will be able to one of the test demonstrator models conducting a test flight live. In attendance will likely be United Airlines as they have already paid a 10 million dollar pre-delivery deposit of 10 million dollars for as many as 100 Midnight aircraft. Stellantis has also been a key player in Archer Aviation's development of this aircraft. Stellantis is known for its business in the global automotive sector namely being the head of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and the French PSA Group and all of their subsidiary brands. Stay-tuned for the unveiling next month.
