Archer Aviation Chief Regulatory Affairs Officer and former FAA administrator Billy Nolen said this about the news:

“Midnight is one giant step closer to taking passengers into the sky in the coming years in the U.S. The final airworthiness criteria for Midnight is an important step on our journey to make electric flying taxis an everyday reality […] Thank you to the team at the FAA for their continued hard work in support of making the electrification of aviation a reality.”
