A jewel projected into the future
The Lilium Jet is an electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft being developed by Lilium GmbH, a German aviation company. The Lilium Jet is designed to operate as an air taxi, providing on-demand urban air transportation with a focus on efficiency, sustainability, and noise reduction.
Here are some key features and details about the Lilium Jet:
Electric VTOL: The Lilium Jet is powered by electric jet engines, which enable it to take off and land vertically like a helicopter. It utilizes ducted fans for propulsion, allowing for a quieter operation compared to traditional helicopters.
Vertical Takeoff and Landing: The eVTOL design enables the Lilium Jet to take off and land in a vertical manner, eliminating the need for traditional runways or helipads. This vertical capability allows it to operate in densely populated urban areas, utilizing existing infrastructure like rooftops or designated landing pads.
Jet Configuration: The Lilium Jet features a fixed-wing design with multiple engines mounted on the wings. These engines are equipped with swiveling ducted fans that provide both vertical lift and forward thrust. Once in the air, the Lilium Jet transitions to a more efficient wing-borne flight, similar to a traditional airplane.Press information
