  1. Bristow Further Expands eVTOL Ambitions With Lilium
    Helicopter operator Bristow has signaled its plans to dive much further into the Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) market. This emerging sector is shaping-up to be a lucrative and also integral part of how we fly in the future particularly in urban areas. Bristow has already made commitments/orders to a few eVTOL manufactures including Vertical Aerospace, Eve, and Overair. They have now made an order with Lilium for the Lilium jet. Yesterday the company announced a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) agreement that would cover options for 50 seven-seat Lilium jets.
  2. The agreement comes with other facets. With its Part 145 maintenance certification and multiple air operator certificates, Bristow will also help Lilium to secure the necessary operating approvals. It will be an authorized service provider for other operators of the all-electric Lilium Jet. "Leveraging our seventy-plus year legacy of innovative and sustainable vertical flight to partner with companies like Lilium to usher in a new era of vertical flight solutions is a cornerstone of Bristow’s future operational outlook," said Bristow president and CEO Christopher Bradshaw. "Bristow has played a key role in successfully introducing several new VTOL [aircraft] platforms for the past fifty-plus years, so it is a natural evolution for us to take a leading role in the new and exciting AAM market and lend our expertise to innovative and dynamic companies like Lilium."
