Lilium concludes eVTOL propulsion system's first tests

Product updates

  • Lilium, a Nasdaq-listed eVTOL jet developer, announced that it concluded its first tests for its electric jet propulsion unit. The round of tests involved assessing the eVTOL's engines taken up to maximum thrust for the first time on its assigned test bed at Lilium's headquarters in Munich, Germany. The tests will be followed by Llilum's planned production of the propulsion unit at its assembly line near Munich.

  • Lilium and other suppliers collaborated on the propulsion unit engines. Honeywell and Japanese firm Denso supplied the engine's electric motor, Aeronamic, a Dutch manufacturer, provided the compressor fan, and Swedish equipment supplier SKF delivered the electric motor bearings.

  • Analyst QuickTake: Lilium's first electric jet propulsion unit production began in February 2024 under a partnership with German automation and robotics company Schnaithmann Maschinenbau. Lilium expects to receive EASA-type certification & FAA approval in 2025 before its planned commercial release in 2026.
