Brazilian eVTOL aircraft developer Eve Air Mobility will make its first appearance at the Paris Air Show at Le Bourget later this month.
The company comes to Paris after a successful year that includes the industry’s largest order backlog (2,770 orders) for its electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft.
It has garnered strong interest and a growing number of customers purchasing its Urban Air Traffic Management (Urban ATM) software and a comprehensive portfolio of agnostic services and operations solutions.
“The Paris Air Show brings together aviation’s global players and showcases the biggest news and the latest advances in the aerospace sector,” said Andre Stein, co-CEO of Eve.
“Eve comes to Paris with tremendous momentum as we continue the development of our eVTOL, including progressing toward key program milestones.”
Cabin Mockup display in Paris
Eve’s eVTOL cabin mock-up will make its first appearance in Paris as part of a world tour that began last Summer at the Farnborough Air Show.
The mock-up showcases Eve’s human-centered design, a quiet, efficient, and sustainable zero-emission eVTOL, and explores its internal features.
The vehicle design uses a conventional wing with eight rotors fixed around it, providing vertical take-off and landing capabilities in a simple lift-plus-cruise design, with an accessible seat configuration for a pilot and four passengers.
Virtual flight display
Visitors to Eve’s display (see location information below) will also be able to experience a virtual flight on its eVTOL aircraft through virtual reality technology.
The technology, which requires a special headset, enables them to have a unique sense of reality by interacting with and feeling what flying on the company’s eVTOL will look like.
About Eve Air Mobility
Eve Air Mobility is a Brazilian subsidiary of Embraer that develops electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft and urban air mobility infrastructure.
The company was founded on October 15, 2020, and its core mission is the advancement of Urban Air Mobility (UAM) through the development of eVTOL aircraft and associated infrastructure.
Eve’s eVTOL aircraft is designed to carry four passengers and a pilot, with a maximum speed of 200 miles per hour and a range of 100 miles.
The aircraft is expected to be certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in 2025, and Eve is targeting a production rate of 2,000 aircraft per year by 2030.
In addition to developing the eVTOL aircraft, Eve is also working on developing the infrastructure needed to support UAM, such as vertiports (take-off and landing locations for eVTOL aircraft) and air traffic management systems.
Eve has partnered with a number of companies to develop this infrastructure, including Ferrovial Vertiports, Volatus Infrastructure, and Urban-Air Ports.
Eve is one of a number of companies developing eVTOL aircraft and UAM infrastructure. Other companies in this space include Archer Aviation, Joby Aviation, and Lilium.
The UAM market is expected to be worth billions of dollars in the coming years, and Eve is well-positioned to capitalize on this growth.
