Lilium Jet eVTOL Aircraft Concept, Specs, and Price – Lilium Jet is a all-electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) lightweight aircraft that is being developed by Lilium Aviation based in Munich, Germany. The aircraft was developed in partnership with the European Space Agency (ESA), Climate-KIC, and Unternehmertum, it will be the first full electric VTOL aircraft in the world.

The Lilium Jet prototype was first launched in June 2016. It was developed by conducting a series of flight tests using the Hexa, Dragon and Falcon scale models. The first flight test of a full-scale prototype aircraft begins in 2017, with the first flight of a fully functional aircraft scheduled to be completed by the end of 2019.

The Lilium eVTOL aircraft is scheduled to start operating in early 2020, while Lilium Aviation is expected to launch aviation service for customers in 2025. This aircraft will be useful for faster intercity travel, because it can complete the journey between San Francisco and Palo Alto in less than 15 minutes and between Munich and Frankfurt in one hour.
