Eve Urban Air Mobility (EVE) an Embraer company, and Bristow Group, a global leader in vertical flight solutions, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to work together to develop an Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) for Eve’s electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft. The partnership will develop an Urban Air Mobility (UAM) operating model using Bristow’s experience in safely transporting passengers and cargo worldwide. In addition, Bristow has placed an order for up to 100 eVTOLs with deliveries expected to start in 2026.

Using each other’s respective strengths, Bristow will lend its 70 plus years of transport expertise in global operations to Eve’s unique value proposition to offer a comprehensive suite of UAM products and services for various regions and missions. The UAM operating environment will focus on areas such as vehicle design, vertiport design, regulatory development for the operating environment, eVTOL certification and autonomous operation.

The companies plan to develop services-based capabilities to support and optimize the performance and utilization of eVTOLs in operation and integrate with both existing and next-generation air traffic management systems.
