Production Technology

Archer's Midnight is an eVTOL aircraft that is set to revolutionize local travel for the everyday commuter through clean, affordable, electric flight. Archer is dedicated to reshaping urban air mobility, focusing on saving time for users in urban areas while utilizing design thinking to provide transformative travel experiences. In essence, Midnight is not merely an aircraft it’s a testament to Archer’s unwavering commitment to reshaping urban mobility while prioritizing safety, efficiency, and sustainability through the lens of world class design.

Design Challenge

Unlike the automotive industry the skin of an eVTOL aircraft cannot be designed alone. The entire aircraft must be designed collectively with engineering and industrial design teams working hand in hand to achieve a final product that’s visually stunning while meeting the strict aerodynamics and weight demands required for the aircraft to perform at the level required. Combining world class design thinking with aerospace engineering is an arduous process. For the landing gear alone there were forty six versions created until the design met the required performance score from the engineering team.

Project Duration

The project started in 2018 in Gainesville, FL before moving to Silicon Valley where Arhcer's HQ and flight test facility is. Commercial flights are planned to begin taking place in 2025. Midnight made its international exhibiting debut at the Paris Airshow in June 2023.

Operation Flow

Midnight is a fusion of aerospace innovation and design, representing Archer’s dedication to providing a world class passenger experience while bringing their new technology to market. The aircraft's cabin experience is personalized with a partial divider between seats, featuring passenger’s name, destination and departure time. Furthermore, Midnight boasts full panoramic windows, providing passengers with an immersive connection to the city below, offering a unique and intimate experience.

Research

Archer’s collaboration with a pioneering aerospace composites manufacturer has resulted in Midnight’s remarkable balance between weight and strength. This partnership is evident in the extensive utilization of cutting edge carbon fiber composites throughout Midnight’s airframe, reinforcing its structural integrity and enhancing its overall performance. The ratio between its lean body and wide wingspan against its dihedral shape of the wings all contribute to a confident and inspiring design.

Inspiration

Archer drew inspiration from the golden age of air travel. The experience of flying itself was an unforgettable one that thrilled passengers. It inspired a sense of exploration and unlocked new adventures that were previously unattainable. Midnight will revive this sense of adventure by applying design principles to the world of aerospace engineering.
