Archer Aviation (NYSE:ACHR) stock is getting a boost on Friday after the maker of electric vertical take-off and landing vehicles (eVTOLs) signed a $500 million memorandum of understanding (MOU).

That MOU has Air Chateau International seeking to purchase 100 of the company’s Midnight eVTOL aircrafts. The company is making a pre-delivery payment of $1 million to secure its order of the Archer Aviation models.

The pre-payment from Air Chateau is due by the end of the year. Following that, the company will also make another $4 million in pre-payments to Archer Aviation for the 100 Midnight eVTOLs.

Adam Goldstein, founder and CEO of Archer Aviation, said the following about the deal:

“It was an honor hosting Air Chateau’s team at the Dubai Air Show 2023 during which they were able to touch, see and feel our aircraft as it headlined the show […] Their recognition that our Midnight aircraft meets what the customer demands in the UAE market and desire to secure the purchase of up to 100 Midnight aircraft is another exciting validation of our efforts to bring to market an aircraft that will revolutionize how people move in and around cities.”
