Lilium’s Phoenix 2 prototype in action


Lilium’s technology demonstrator, Phoenix 2, has achieved an industry first for an electric jet: full transition from hover to wing-borne flight. Full transition is achieved when the main and canard wings adjust position, enabling the Lilium Jet to move from powered vertical lift into highly efficient, wing-borne flight. Watch the flight test team make the full transition at ~100 kt (~190km/h) at a test facility in Atlas, Spain
