Archer Aviation and FACC have entered into an agreement for FACC to fabricate and supply key fuselage and wing elements of Archer’s production eVTOL aircraft that is currently under development. The high-tech expertise of aerospace specialist FACC in the field of lightweight construction, as well as its many years of experience in the production of high-quality aerostructures were decisive factors in Archer choosing to work with FACC and will help ensure that Archer’s production aircraft can achieve its target range and payload capabilities.
