Archer Aviation's Midnight aircraft and key executives Adam Goldstein and Billy Nolen, CEO and CSO respectively, will take centre stage at the US Chamber of Commerce 2023 Aerospace Summit at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, DC on 12-13 September. The two leaders will 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 marks 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.
“This year's theme for the Global Aerospace Summit, 'Innovating the Skies, Connecting the World', perfectly describes what Archer and our industry are on the doorstep of achieving,” says Goldstein. “The future of urban air mobility is upon us, thanks to strong support from the whole of the US government as well as collaboration across the industry, including from mobility leaders like United Airlines, Boeing and Stellantis.”
The Global Aerospace Summit brings together government leaders and industry experts from across the world. Speakers also include United Airlines CEO Scott Kirby; Airbus CEO Guillaume Faury; American Airlines CEO Robert Isom; The honourable Glenn Youngkin, governor, Commonwealth of Virginia.
