Archer Aviation has inked a thrilling new setup with the Abu Dhabi Investment Office (ADIO) that can bring its air taxis to the city in as soon to be 2026, making helicopters not the only flying wonders capable of Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) in the UAE. The UAE’s General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) plans to bring a proposed air taxi service to the UAE soon is the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certifies it.

This would also make it simpler on Archer to build its first worldwide headquarters and manufacturing facilities in Abu Dhabi’s Smart and Autonomous Vehicle Industry (SAVI) Cluster. Archer also has a partnership with Falcon Aviation, a well-known player in the UAE for operating helicopters for more than two decades. Working together will bring all-electric air taxis to Dubai and Abu Dhabi, supporting the UAE’s passionate efforts to promote sustainability in all sectors.
