We are working on an innovative product which has the potential to disrupt personal aviation. We are building the worldwide first entirely electric vertical take-off and landing jet. We believe that Lilium can convince the jury and audience not only by offering its customers a totally new flight experience but also by contributing to tackle climate change. Its aircraft is emission free, as it works entirely electrically, which is a huge progress in comparison to how existing aircraft operates. The two-seated, entirely electric jet combines the ability of a helicopter to take-off vertically with the speed and comfort of an electric business jet. Due to the electric and shielded fan engines the Lilium Jet is much more quiet than a helicopter during take-off and thus gets permission to fly in most places helicopters are forbidden.
