The proprietary technology at the core of the Lilium Jet is Ducted Electric Vectored Thrust (DEVT) which we have refined through successive generations of aircraft 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 manoeuvre the Lilium Jet through every phase of flight.
Introducing the first electric vertical take-off and landing jet
Aerodynamic efficiencyWith fixed wings, embedded distributed propulsion and no tail the Lilium Jet is highly efficient in cruise flight.
Market-leading payloadDucted engines provide a high payload at low footprint, enabling the use of existing helipads.
Low noise profileAcoustic liners help capture and dissipate noise before it reverberates into the environment.

Ducted Electric Vectored Thrust
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.
1. Ducted fansHigh efficiency due to reduced blade tip losses, removed exit swirl and guided flow.
2. Acoustic LinersEngine ducts with acoustic liners help capture and dissipate the noise before it propagates into the environment.
3. Electric MotorBuilt to aerospace standard, our highly efficient motors are uniquely designed for Liliums flight envelope.
4. Variable nozzlesA variable nozzle ensures peak engine efficiency both in cruise flight and in hover flight.
Configured for your needs
Designed for versatility
The Lilium Jet can adapt for a range of customers and uses, with each configuration optimized for an unparalleled experience. The most spacious cabin arrangement is designed for private flights, with luxurious club seating. Alternatively, the cabin can be configured with 6 seats for passenger flights, or without seats to serve the zero-emissions logistics market.
Five generations of flight
Lilium is one of the only pioneers in eVTOL seeking dual certification with EASA and FAA. Since 2015, we’ve designed, built and tested 5 generations of technology demonstrators and invited the world to watch as we pioneer an aircraft and flight control system never seen before.
