Eve Air Mobility, an eVTOL developer and manufacturer and part of the wider Embraer business has unveiled further partners supplying parts to its projects.
The four suppliers will provide services ranging from flight computers to the aircraft’s seats.
Thales will provide its “air data solution” which comprises sensors and a central computer system. These will gather critical data such as airspeed, altitude and environmental conditions.
Honeywell will supply guidance and navigation computer systems, as well as external lighting for the aircraft. This will include magnetometers, GPS-aided attitude & heading reference systems, designed to work with other systems to ensure a safe flight.
RECARO Aircraft Seating will supply the seats, and FACC will supply components including the rudder, elevator and aileron.
The first Eve craft will have space for four passengers and the pilot.

According to Eve’s CEO Johann Bordais the component contracts are all part of the firm’s production “master plan”.
“We continue to be on schedule with our master plan and we are building a strong and reputable list of qualified suppliers for our eVTOL aircraft,” he said.
“We have been very deliberate in establishing a long-term working relationship with each of our suppliers. Each agreement covers the aircraft’s life cycle including prototype, production, and aftermarket service and operational support. We look forward to working with Thales, Honeywell, RECARO and FACC as we progress toward entry into service in 2026 and well into the future.”
The partner announcement comes three months after Eve revealed the first external suppliers.
