Last week’s Dubai Airshow not only focused on commercial and military aircraft and products but also on Advanced Air Mobility (AAM). In fact, a dedicated hall for eVTOLs and part suppliers was new at this year’s event. Archer, AutoFlight, Airbus, EVE Air Mobility, and lesser-known companies shared commercial and program updates.
Archer brought a full-scale model of the Midnight to Dubai, for which it needed three containers and a cargo plane to fly it to the airshow. On the commercial side, Archer signed a Memorandum of Understanding with UAE-based Air Chateau for the purchase of up to 100 Midnights valued at $500 million. Air Chateau is the first private helicopter operator in the UAE and has multiple ‘touchpoints’ across the Emirates.
