Eve UAM and Falko announce LoI to build eVTOL network

A working group will be set up to collaborate with Falko’s current operators to develop route networks to deploy eVTOL.

Eve UAM and Falko Regional Aircraft have entered a letter of intent (LoI) for a potential order of Eve’s 200 electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft (eVTOL), as well as a partnership to build a network of eVTOL operators.

 The partnership between Embraer firm Eve UAM and commercial regional aircraft leasing firm Falko will commence with the setting up of a working group.

The working group will collaborate with Falko’s current operators to develop those initial route networks where Eve’s aircraft can be deployed.

Furthermore, to provide a scalable network for each leasee of Falko using eVTOL,  Eve’s product portfolio comprising next-generation air traffic management software, service capabilities and fleet operations services will be introduced to them.

Since 2014, Falko has been cooperating with Embraer and opted Eve as its Urban Air Mobility mission partner.

Falko CEO Jeremy Barnes said: “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.”

Eve co-CEO Andre Stein said: “Our partnership with Falko, a trusted aircraft leasing leader, cements our position in the global Urban Air Mobility marketplace and not only widens our potential operator base through Falko’s global customer footprint but increases our ability to provide full-stack solutions, through partnerships.

“We are proud to have Falko as a strategic partner in Eve as our two organisations collaborate to lead a new generation of sustainable innovation in aviation.”
