Lilium is a disruptive aviation start-up based in Munich, Germany. Co-founded in 2015 by Daniel Wiegand, Sebastian Born, Patrick Nathen and Matthias Meiner, the team brings together international world-class engineers and designers. The group shares the vision of a completely new type of individual transportation and is dedicated to developing and building the world’s first fully electric vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) jet. An estimated range of up to 300 km, and cruising velocity of 300 km per hour, along with zero emissions, make it the most efficient and eco-friendly individual means of transportation of our time. By providing ultra-redundancy, the Lilium Jet will also set new standards in safety. Lilium’s vision is to liberate towns and cities from today’s congestion and pollution, with people able to come and go freely, vastly expanding the radius of their everyday lives.
The Mission Statement
Our mission is to enable a world where everybody can fly anywhere, anytime.
Our vision is to be the leading company in on-demand air transportation by providing quiet, eco-friendly and exceptionally designed VTOL jets and a magical user experience.
Ismael Matamoros is a flight control engineer holding a Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering at TU Delft. He followed the Control and Simulation track, specializing on nonlinear flight control for high-performance aircraft and control allocation for highly-augmented aircraft with innovative control effector configurations. He carried out his Master Thesis in collaboration with Lockheed Martin Skunk Works, where he developed advanced nonlinear control allocation algorithms for stealth aircraft. Currently he works as a flight control engineer at Lilium, where he is working on the design, development and certification of flight control laws for a five-seater all-electric eVTOL aircraft.
