ARC Aerosystems Press Release | January 24, 2024

Estimated reading time 2 minutes, 13 seconds.

ARC Aerosystems has finalized a transaction for the sale of five Pegasus aircraft to a Scottish investor to lease to a pilot training school and an aerial service operator, with ARC committed to delivering all units by the first quarter of 2026.

The Pegasus is the first non-helicopter vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft to receive Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification.

Understanding the eVTOL landscape, ARC looks to leverage the Pegasus potential as a solution to modern challenges in rural transport and various civil contingencies.

The Pegasus offers several advantages over current eVTOL models: notably lower power consumption, increased safety, and reduced maintenance costs.

Crucially, unlike many eVTOL concepts still under development, the Pegasus is already certified and operationally proven.

The certification and demonstrated operational reliability of the Pegasus set it apart in a market filled with emerging, yet unproven, eVTOL concepts. This sale not only reflects ARC Aerosystems capability to meet current aviation demands but also highlights its role in shaping the future of VTOL

Dr. Seyed Mohseni said: “The first real sale of five aircraft exemplify ARC Aerosystems ability to meet the evolving needs of the aviation industry but also reinforces its commitment to pioneering efficient and practical aerial mobility solutions.”

ARC Aerosystems is poised to begin test flights of the Pegasus over the coming months at its Cranfield facility, with public demonstrations planned at the Farnborough Air Show.

This press release was prepared and distributed by ARC Aerosystems.
