ARC Aerosystems confirms sale of five VTOL Pegasus aircraft

ARC Aerosystems, a technology firm based in the UK, has finalised a transaction for the sale of five Pegasus aircraft to a Scottish investor to lease to a pilot training school and an aerial service operator, with ARC committed to delivering all units by the first quarter of 2026. The Pegasus the company says is the first non helicopter VTOL aircraft to receive FAA certification.

“Understanding the eVTOL landscape, ARC looks to leverage the Pegasus potential as a solution to modern challenges in rural transport and various civil contingencies” according to the press release. “The Pegasus offers several advantages over current eVTOL models: notably lower power consumption, increased safety, and reduced maintenance costs. Crucially, unlike many eVTOL concepts still under development, the Pegasus is already certified and operationally proven.

“The certification and demonstrated operational reliability of the Pegasus set it apart in a market filled with emerging, yet unproven, eVTOL concepts. This sale not only reflects ARC Aerosystems capability to meet current aviation demands but also highlights its role in shaping the future of VTOL technology.

“ARC Aerosystems is poised to begin test flights of the Pegasus over the coming months at its Cranfield facility, with public demonstrations planned at the Farnborough Air Show.”
