Eve UAM, an Embraer company, and Skyports, a leading infrastructure provider for electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) passenger and cargo vehicles, have agreed on a partnership that will support the development of a new Concept of Operations (CONOPS) for Advanced Air Mobility (AAM), including Urban Air Mobility (UAM), for the Japan Civil Aviation Bureau (JCAB). The initiative aims to provide a shared vision of airspace design, operation, infrastructure, and other benefits to enable AAM operation in Japan.

The collaboration involves partners including Kanematsu Corporation, the major Japanese trading company with businesses in the aerospace industry, and Japan Airlines (JAL), the main Japanese passenger airline for domestic and international air transportation.

Eve has partnered with Skyports in multiple and diverse concepts worldwide, forming a cooperation that examines the AAM ecosystem required for distinctive operating environments across the globe. This unique experience benefits the preparation of Japan’s CONOPS and ensures that the needs of users, the Japanese community, and other stakeholders will be taken into account.
