U.S. Marine Corps visits Archer “indicating growing military interest in Midnight eVTOL “

Archer Aviation today announced that on August 4 it showcased its Midnight eVTOL aircraft to a group of leaders from the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC). The visit from the USMC comes on the heels of Archer’s announcement last week of its deal with the U.S Air Force valued at up to USD142 million. The Company considers the visit is an indication of the growing interest in Archer’s Midnight aircraft across the U.S. military.

With Archer recently completing the manufacturing of its first Midnight aircraft, the company says “Department of Defense personnel have indicated they recognise that with its vertical takeoff and landing capabilities, target payload of approximately 1,000lbs, proprietary electric powertrain system, and low noise profile, Archer’s aircraft represents a potential paradigm shift in military aviation and operations. These aircraft hold the promise of enhancing rapid response, agility, and operational effectiveness across a wide range of mission profiles, from personnel transport and logistics support to rescue operations and more. Archer’s Midnight aircraft are expected to provide a much safer and quieter alternative to helicopters while being more cost-effective for the U.S. military to transport, operate and maintain in the field.”
