ARC Aerosystems has finalized a transaction for the sale of five Pegasus aircraft to a Scottish investor to lease to a pilot training school and an aerial service operator, with ARC committed to delivering all units by the first quarter of 2026.
Understanding the eVTOL landscape, ARC looks to leverage the Pegasus potential as a solution to modern challenges in rural transport and various civil contingencies. Pegasus is said to be the first non-helicopter VTOL aircraft to receive FAA certification.
The Pegasus offers notably lower power consumption, increased safety, and reduced maintenance costs. Crucially, unlike many eVTOL concepts, the Pegasus is already certified and operationally proven.
According to ARC, the sale not only reflects the company’s capability to meet current aviation demands but also highlights its role in shaping the future of VTOL technology.
Dr Seyed Mohseni; “The first real sale of five aircraft exemplifies ARC Aerosystems ability to meet the evolving needs of the aviation industry but also reinforces its commitment to pioneering efficient and practical aerial mobility solutions.”
ARC Aerosystems is poised to begin test flights of the Pegasus over the coming months at its Cranfield facility, with public demonstrations planned at the Farnborough Air Show.
