Embraer’s Eve Urban Air Mobility Solutions (Eve) and leading vertiport company Skyports have formed a partnership to develop urban air mobility (UAM) solutions, with a focus on vehicle-vertiport operations in early adopter markets in Asia and the Americas.
The agreement extends the relationship between the two organizations, which began in early 2020 while Eve was incubated at EmbraerX. As UAM nears initial launch in multiple markets around the world, the companies will use Eve’s zero-emission and low-noise eVTOL vehicle, urban air traffic management (UATM) software, and UAM services to develop a concept of operations that will inform operational procedures, as well as vehicle and services’ development. Together, the companies aim to rapidly advance and disrupt the industry by bringing Eve’s innovative eVTOL vehicle to the market, where passengers will experience the future of electric transportation and a new model of sustainable mobility.
As part of this collaboration, Skyports will contribute to a market-readiness exercise and a vehicle concept-of-operation study in Brazil, furthering Eve’s development of the UAM market in the region. The organizations have already worked together developing a concept of operations with Airservices Australia and are currently collaborating to develop UAM operations in the U.K.Email Post to a Friend
