Lilium Celebrates its Maiden Flight

On May 16th,2019, Lilium, the Munich-based startup developing a revolutionary on- demand air taxi service, revealed its new five-seater air taxi prototype for the first time. The unveiling of the new Lilium Jet came as the all-electric aircraft completed its maiden flight in the skies over Germany earlier May. The full-scale, full-weight prototype is powered by 36 all-electric jet engines that allow it to take-off and land vertically, while achieving remarkably efficient horizontal, or cruise, flight. Lilium can reach up to maximum 300 km/h speed and 300km distance with electric jet engines. The simplicity of the aircraft design, with no tail, no rudder, no propellers, no gearbox and only one moving part in the engine not only contributes to the safety and affordability of the aircraft, but it has also allowed the design team to focus their efforts on creating a magical customer experience in the cabin, from panoramic windows to gull-wing doors.

Lilium will manufacture and operate the Lilium Jet as part of a revolutionary on-demand air taxi service and it expects to be fully-operational in various cities around the world by 2025.
