Archer Aviation, the developer of the Midnight electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, has announced a large showcase for Midnight and the Archer team.

As part of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s 2023 Aerospace Summit, taking place at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, DC, on September 12-13, 2023, Archer will be rolling out a showcase of the eVTOL. Adam Goldstein, Archer’s founder and CEO, and Billy Nolen, Archer’s Chief Safety Officer, will take center stage to discuss Archer and the larger eVTOL aircraft industry’s progress toward the goal of beginning commercial operations in 2025 and reaching scaled operations by 2028.

This will be the first-ever public display of Archer’s Midnight aircraft in the United States. The aircraft made its international debut earlier this year at the Paris Air Show. The last time an eVTOL aircraft was on display at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center was in 2019 at the Uber Elevate Conference.

The Global Aerospace Summit will bring together government leaders and aviation industry experts from across the globe. In addition to Archer’s Goldstein and Nolen, speakers include United Airlines CEO Scott Kirby, Airbus CEO Guillaume Faury, American Airlines CEO Robert Isom, the Honorable Glenn Youngkin, Governorof the Commonwealth of Virginia, and many more.

“This year’s theme for the Global Aerospace Summit, ‘Innovating the Skies, Connecting the World,’ perfectly describes what Archer and our industry is on the doorstep of achieving,” said Archer’s founder and CEO Adam Goldstein. “The future of urban air mobility is upon us thanks to the strong support from the whole of the U.S. government as well as the collaboration across the industry, including from mobility leaders like United Airlines, Boeing and Stellantis.”
