The first electric vertical
take-off and landing jet

Since 2015, we’ve been developing proprietary technology that powers our all-electric vertical take-off and landing jets. Through an iterative process we designed, built and tested 4 generations of prototypes including our current 5-seat technology demonstrator. In 2018, we applied for concurrent type certification with EASA and FAA for a larger Lilium Jet and subsequently began work behind the scenes on our 7-seater – an aircraft enabling a sustainable and accessible mode of high-speed travel.

We're proud to introduce our serial aircraft planned to launch commercial operations in 2024.

Aerodynamic efficiency

With fixed wings, embedded distributed propulsion and no tail the Lilium Jet is highly efficient in cruise flight.

Market-leading payload

Ducted engines provide a high payload at low footprint, enabling the use of existing helipads.

Low noise profile

Thanks to ducted fans with integrated acoustic liners, the noise level is kept below 60dBA at 100m.

Ducted Electric Vectored Thrust

The proprietary technology at the core of the Lilium Jet is Ducted Electric Vectored Thrust (DEVT) which we have refined through successive generations of technology demonstrators. Electric jet engines integrated into the wing flaps provide advantages in payload, aerodynamic efficiency and a lower noise profile, whilst also providing thrust vector control to maneuver the Lilium Jet through every phase of flight.

Underlying engine technologies

Traditional jet engines power 95% of commercial aircraft and we have based our design on the same principles, yet far simpler. Our electric jet engines rely on just a single "stage" rotor/stator system driven by an electric motor with zero emissions.

Lilium Jet Engine
Ducted fans

1. Ducted fans

High efficiency due to reduced blade tip losses, removed exit swirl and guided flow.
Acoustic Liners

2. Acoustic Liners

Engine ducts with acoustic liners help capture and dissipate noise before it propagates into the environment.
Electric Motor

3. Electric Motor

Built to aerospace standard, our highly efficient motors are uniquely designed for the Lilium Jet's flight envelope.
Variable nozzles

4. Variable nozzles

A variable nozzle ensures peak engine efficiency both in cruise flight and in hover flight.

Our cabin


The cabin is designed for your comfort above all, without compromising performance. We can welcome six passengers to spacious window seats and a central aisle to stretch your legs. Our pilot sits in a separate cockpit and there’s an additional hold for your luggage.
