Archer Announces Planned San Francisco Air Mobility Network Connecting Five Locations Across the Bay Area

Posted by Admin

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- (NYSE: ACHR), a leader in electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, today announced plans for an air mobility network that will connect five strategic locations across the San Francisco Bay Area - South San Francisco, Napa, San Jose, Oakland, and Livermore. Archer’s network is anticipated to provide unprecedented connectivity to communities around the region, allowing people to replace one-to-two-hour drives to cities around the bay with flights that take ~10-20 minutes. To anchor the network, Kilroy Realty Corporation (NYSE: KRC, “Kilroy”), a leading U.S. landlord and developer with an 18 million square foot operating and development portfolio, recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Archer identifying Kilroy Oyster Point – a 50-acre waterfront campus in South San Francisco – as a critical hub in Archer’s planned San Francisco Bay Area UAM network.

NTSB Final Report: Estacada, OR

Posted by Admin

The pilot reported that he was relocating bundles of trees from the harvest field onto a truck bed. Approximately 30 minutes into the operation, the load hook did not immediately release when he was setting a bundle down. The pilot pressed the release button multiple times, as he had done in similar situations in the past. The helicopter’s momentum, as it moved back towards the field, caused the bundle to slide a few feet. One of the main rotor blades then struck the tail boom, and the other blade flapped down, cutting off the rear section of the tail boom, vertical stabilizer, and tail rotor. The helicopter spun several times before landing, resting flat on the skids. The landing impact was forceful enough to break the mast and dislodge the main transmission. The helicopter sustained substantial damage to the main rotor, tail boom, vertical stabilizer, tail rotor, and transmission. The pilot reported that there were no preaccident mechanical malfunctions or failures with the helicopter that would have precluded normal operations.
