Safety, safety, safety
Midnight was designed from the start with safety in mind. To achieve our desired levels of safety, redundancy is key. Midnight’s avionics system includes four flight control computers, with redundant inertial navigation, GNSS and AGL sensors to ensure robust and reliable data to the pilot. Each pair of forward and aft electric engines are independently powered, helping to ensure the aircraft can safely complete a flight should an entire battery pack fail.
Lightweight Composite Structure
Archer joined forces with one of the leading manufacturers of aerospace composites to create an optimal balance of weight and strength. These advanced carbon fiber composites comprise Midnight’s full airframe, enabling our aircraft’s structural safety and aircraft performance.
Balanced Powertrain System
Our proprietary powertrain system delivers an optimized balance of power and dependability. It’s capable of over 3,000 flight cycles, and allows for a rapid charge time of around 10 minutes between flights. Midnight utilizes a strategic layout of six independent battery packs in its wings to deliver reliability and proper weight distribution.
Designed to hold a 1,000+lbs of payload, the aircraft can truly handle four passengers plus a pilot.
