Having cooperated with Embraer since 2014, Falco Regional Aircraft Limited (Falco), a global leader in the leasing of commercial aircraft, has announced that it has signed a Letter of Intent in relation to a potential order for 200 Eve electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft as part of a commercial partnership to develop a global network of eVTOL operators.
Eve is a subsidiary of Brazilian planemaker Embraer and the partnership with Falko will commence with the establishment of a working group that will collaborate with existing Falco operators to develop initial route networks for eVTOL aircraft. In addition, Eve’s agnostic product portfolio of next-generation air traffic management software, service capabilities and fleet operations services will also be introduced to create a safe, scalable network for each Falko lessee using Eve’s aircraft.
“I am thrilled to announce this huge development in our long standing and successful relationship with Embraer. We are very excited by our strategic partnership with Eve which forms part of our drive to be at the forefront of the greening of the aviation sector. We firmly believe in the prospects of the eVTOL market and that Eve, with the support of Embraer’s experience in the manufacturing, certification and support of aircraft, will be a market leader,” states Jeremy Barnes, CEO of Falko.Email Post to a Friend
