The most disruptive moment ever for rotor craft industry?

Could this be the press statement with news of the begining of the most disruptive period in the history of rotary?
Brazilian airline "orders" 220 liliums and talks of a potential requirement for 1000...

In a video interview, interesting and pertinent comments by Azul Airlines CEO, noting how Lilium will integrate into Brazil's helicopter market.

Short video on lilium Facebook page of approach and landing of their latest test platform. Not much new to see, the craft does not feature the landing gear on the full scale mockup nor the straight edged engine nacelles. Engines still have trendy serrated outflow.

https://lilium.com/jetWebsite has info on tie-up with a custom battery manufacturer.

There's a sucker born every minute! Better cash out early before that stock tanks!

30 minute, 100% fast charge turnaround

Charging spec is shuttle friendly. Marketing funding in place, they just need to build and fly a full scale aircraft.
"Were excited to announce plans for ABB to provide fast-charging infrastructure for our high-speed regional air network helping us deliver the quick turnaround times needed for electric aviation. The charging points are designed to fully charge batteries in approximately 30 minutes and up to 80% in 15 minutes."
