Breaking: City of Orlando innovation director takes new job at air taxi startup Lilium

City of Orlando Director of Innovation Matt Broffman is flying off to a new role with air taxi maker Lilium.

Broffman will lead public engagement efforts in Florida for the German company, which will build a 56,000-square-foot takeoff and landing facility for its electric passenger jets in Orlando. The local facility, known as a vertiport, will be Lilium’s first in the U.S., but the company will target more facilities across the Sunshine State with Broffman’s help.
