Lilium N.V. (NASDAQ: LILM) (“Lilium”), developer of the first all-electric vertical take-off and landing (“eVTOL”) jet, announces that its technology demonstrator, Phoenix 2, has achieved main wing transition. This means it is the first-ever full-size electric jet aircraft to transition from hover to wing-borne flight. This is a landmark moment for Lilium and for electric aviation as a whole.
The European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) and the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) highlight the official launch of the ambitious program called S.T.A.R.S. — Standards & Training for Aviation Responsibility and Sustainability — at the 2022 European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE2022) in Geneva, Switzerland.
StandardAero is celebrating 25 years of providing maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) support for the Rolls-Royce AE 3007 turbofan, which powers the Embraer ERJ regional jet family, the Cessna Citation X business jet, the Northrop Grumman RQ/MQ-4 Global Hawk unmanned aircraft system (UAS) and the Boeing MQ-25 Stingray UAS. Since inducting its first AE 3007 in 1997, StandardAero’s Maryville, TN, facility has processed over 6,500 engines for operators worldwide.
Aeronautix is awarded an FAA STC for its aural warning and annunciation system (AWAS) which the company is manufacturing and installing on the Beechcraft King Air 300 and 350 series aircraft. The system, designed to integrate with the Collins Pro Line 21™ avionics suite, improves situational awareness by giving aural voice warnings to pilots, avoiding potential engine damage due to over-temp or over-torque conditions.
