Since day one, we’ve been focused on the commercialization of this industry. That’s why we started by using data to predict the demand profile we are building for. We remain steadfast in our resolve to bring an aircraft to market with the most efficient path and least amount of risk that can achieve profitability.
We identified early on that partnering with established players in adjacent industries was key to our commercialization strategy.

Building the Future of Travel Together
Scaling the Skies, Together
Through our collaboration with Stellantis, we benefit from access to their supply chain relationships, advanced composite material capabilities, and engineering and design experience for high volume manufacturing operations. We are working closely with Stellantis to put Archer in a position to scale our aircraft manufacturing reliably and cost effectively, which will allow us to bring Urban Air Mobility to the masses.
Our collaboration with Stellantis on battery development and sourcing, including battery fast charging, light weighting, and management systems is helping drive the innovation we are achieving on our electric propulsion systems.
Completed seven engineering projects related to high volume composite manufacturing and properties testing, battery development and sourcing for commercial aviation applications, prototype composite part development, and cabin noise vibration harshness
Stellantis has also given us valuable input throughout our manufacturing site selection and design process
