Archer Aviation has entered into an agreement with FACC, a developer and manufacturer of aircraft components and systems, to fabricate and supply key fuselage and wing elements of Archer's production eVTOL aircraft currently under development.
The high-tech expertise of aerospace specialist FACC in the field of lightweight construction, as well as its many years of experience in the production of high-quality aerostructures, were decisive factors in Archer choosing to work with the company and will help ensure that Archer's production aircraft can achieve its target range and payload capabilities.
“Archer believes that working with established leaders in the supply of aerospace components will help drive our long term success and our choice to work with FACC certainly reflects that,” says CEO Adam Goldstein. “FACC's proven track record in fabricating advanced composite structures for the aerospace industry, coupled with its focus on innovation and safety, makes it the perfect supplier for some of the most significant elements of our aircraft structure.”
“We are exceptionally proud to be able to count Archer, one of the market leaders in the emerging field of urban air mobility, among our customers," says CEO Robert Machtlinger. “We expect this exciting new area of aviation to show strong growth, and we're thrilled to be part of the journey with such an innovative partner.”
