They will develop sites for eVTOL operations in the Los Angeles and New York City metropolitan areas, along with Northern California and South Florida

Archer Aviation, a specialist in electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, and Atlantic Aviation, a fixed-base operator (FBO) network and aviation services provider, intend to electrify several of Atlantic Aviation’s existing aviation assets to support future electric aircraft operations, including Archer’s Midnight air taxi, at Atlantic Aviation locations across four key launch markets.

The companies plan to leverage their existing relationships with BETA Technologies to install BETA’s interoperable rapid recharging systems. BETA’s chargers utilise the Combined Charging System (CCS) that was recently endorsed by the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) and is being utilised by several top original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) across the industry. 

Atlantic and Archer anticipate launch of service across these initial locations in 2025 and subsequent expansion of services to other locations across Atlantic Aviation’s significant portfolio as availability of Archer’s aircraft scales.
