An electric jet that takes off and lands vertically like a helicopter, but cruises like a jet
Lilium will enable faster travel than existing high-speed alternatives, opening direct connections to create a new, sustainable network. The Lilium Jet will be fully operational in various markets around the world by 2026.



Lilium is one of the only pioneers in eVTOL seeking dual certification with EASA and FAA. Since 2015, they’ve designed, built and tested 5 generations of technology demonstrators and invited the world to watch as they pioneer an aircraft and flight control system never seen before.



The Lilium Jet can adapt for a range of customers and uses, with each configuration optimized for an unparalleled experience. The most spacious cabin arrangement is designed for private flights, with luxurious club seating.

Alternatively, the cabin can be configured with 6 seats for passenger flights, or without seats to serve the zero-emissions logistics market.


Traditional jet engines power 95% of commercial aircraft and Lilium has based their design on the same principles, yet far simpler. Lilium electric jet engines rely on just a single “stage” rotor/stator system driven by an electric motor with zero emissions.

The proprietary technology at the core of the Lilium Jet is Ducted Electric Vectored Thrust (DEVT) which Lilium has refined through successive generations of aircraft demonstrators. Electric jet engines integrated into the wing flaps provide advantages in payload, aerodynamic efficiency and a lower noise profile, whilst also providing thrust vector control to manoeuvre the Lilium Jet through every phase of flight.


In aviation parlance, standby instrumentation is intended to serve as a backup display in case of a failure of the primary cockpit instrumentation. As such, the component supplied by Garmin represents a key safety feature of the Lilium Jet and will provide an additional layer of protection for crew and passengers.

  • Standby flight instruments supplied by Garmin represent a key safety feature of the Lilium Jet and will provide fully redundant flight instrumentation
  • First units have been delivered to Lilium to be integrated in the first Lilium Jets and the Lilium Jet flight simulator for pilot training
