Summary

Aircraft maker Archer is boasting about a recent hover test.

Its electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft, known as an eVTOL, made it off the ground last week. Earlier this year Archer showed off its five-seater prototype, called Maker. The company plans to develop an air taxi commuter transportation system with its small electric planes.

At a test flight location in California, the demo Maker went airborne successfully on Thursday morning. While not a full flight, the successful hover showed that the hardware and software was in working order. This first test means the company can move onto more testing in the new year.
