Archer’s Airworthiness Criteria for its Midnight Aircraft Published in Federal Register

December 20, 2022

SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Archer Aviation Inc. (NYSE: ACHR) today announced that the proposed Airworthiness Criteria for its Midnight aircraft have been published in the Federal Register by the FAA, a significant milestone on its path to commercializing urban air mobility in the U.S. Midnight is designed to be safe, sustainable, quiet and, with its expected payload of over 1,000 pounds, can carry four passengers plus a pilot. Midnight has a range of up to 100 miles and can travel at speeds of up to 150 mph, but is optimized for back-to-back short distance trips of around 20-miles, with a charging time of approximately 10 minutes in between trips. Archer is working to certify Midnight with the FAA in late 2024 and will then use it as part of its UAM network, which it plans to launch in 2025.
