The company has claimed that the cruise flight is extremely remarkable and works well.

It is also calculated that the flight will require about 10 percent of the 2000 horsepower which is maximum for the cruise flight.

 “This efficiency, which is comparable to the energy usage of an electric car over the same distance, means the aircraft would not just be capable of connecting suburbs to city centers and airports to main train stations, but would also deliver affordable high-speed connections across entire regions”

The first flight was on the 4th of May 2019 at 8:03 local time Munich, Germany. According to the Chief executing officer, the Lilium Jets were all remotely controlled.
