Making Urban Air Mobility a reality

We dreamed of a world where anyone could fly wherever they wanted, whenever they wanted. Whether they were rushing from city to city or traveling from the suburbs to the city center we wanted to provide them with a fast travel option which was affordable, positive for the environment and available on-demand. It had to look great and feel great.

We assessed more than 20 existing aircraft concepts, from multicopters to tilt rotor aircraft, to find the perfect solution but soon realized that none of these satisfied us.

Our answer? We threw away the rule book and invented something the world had never seen before.

Take it for a spin

Lilium Jet 360

Balance of power

The all-electric Lilium Jet is a pioneering tilt jet aircraft with 36 engines mounted on its flaps. It delivers the best range, speed, noise and cost, meaning our customers can travel in style anywhere, anytime, without having to worry about the impact on their pocket, or the environment.


Further. Faster.

With a range of 300 km, the Lilium Jet would be able to connect not just urban and suburban areas, but also cities to each other.

As the only jet-powered transition aircraft in the market, the Lilium Jet is uniquely positioned to deliver the full potential of the Urban Air Mobility market, while retaining the ability to land in the most densely-populated urban areas.

Engines of change

While each Lilium Jet will be fitted with 36 of our pioneering, all-electric engines, they are each one of a kind. They don’t create the sort of noise you might associate with a helicopter or a commercial jet engine, thanks to their ducted design which captures and dissipates noise before it leaves the engine.

Their low vibrations ensure a smooth and quiet ride for passengers, and their small size means they’re perfectly suited to efficient cruise flight. With zero operational emissions and record-breaking power-to-weight and thrust-to-noise ratios, they are the first ever electric jet engines in commercial certification.


Simply beautiful

We believe in the power of simplicity and, with no tail, no rudder, no variable pitch, no folding propellers, no gearboxes, no oil circuits and only one moving part in the engine, the Lilium Jet embodies this principle. After all, the fewer components an aircraft contains, the safer and more affordable it becomes.

And, by keeping things simple, we’ve been able to focus on delivering a magical customer experience. From panoramic views to a spacious cabin and gull-wing doors, the Lilium Jet will deliver a flying experience like no other.


Safety first. And second.

Safety is non-negotiable and, like commercial jetliners, the Lilium Jet is being certified to standards set by independent government bodies, such as the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) in Europe and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the United States. These standards continue to ensure that traveling by air remains the safest form of transport.
The Lilium Jet is built on the principle of ultra-redundancy, with 36 independent engines and a triple-redundant flight control computer, meaning the safety of the aircraft would not be compromised by the very unlikely failure of any one component.
