Archer Complets Battery Pack Drop Testing

“One of the Most Challenging Tests” Out of the Way En Route to Certification Archer Aviation announced the successful completion of testing on its battery packs, evaluating their ability to withstand drops without failure and rupture. The test saw their Midnight aircraft’s batteries dropped at various charge states, from totally dead to 100% from a 50-foot height. Archer reports that they all tanked the hits just fine, and continued to function properly. The test was expected to be one of the most challenging of the battery of tests used to winnow out weaknesses of aircraft, and Archer sounds relieved to have it in the rear view.
