  1. Lilium Jet Demonstrates Main Wing Transition
    At the end of May Lilium announced that its test prototype of the Lilium Jet successfully achieved main wing transition. The technology demonstrator called "Phoenix 2" has demonstrated main wing transition which means it is the first ever full-size electric jet aircraft to transition from hover to wing-borne flight. This is a landmark moment for Lilium and for electric aviation as a whole.
  2. Matthias Meiner, Phoenix Chief Engineer and Lilium Co-Founder of Lilium said: "Main wing transition is a huge step forward on our path to launch and it validates our Flight Dynamics Model. Full credit goes to the outstanding Lilium team who worked so hard to get us here, and who remain laser-focused on the rest of the Flight Test Campaign." Next on the list of testing for the rest of Summer will be continued expansion of the flight envelope. They will work on testing of the transition of the forward canards and high-speed flights.
