Eve and Falko Regional Aircraft announced today a Letter of Intent which contemplates a potential order for 200 of Eve’s electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft and a commercial partnership to develop a global network of eVTOL operators in support of Urban Air Mobility missions.

The partnership between Eve and Falko will begin by establishing a working group to collaborate with Falko’s existing operators to develop initial route networks where Eve’s aircraft can be deployed in early adopter markets. Additionally, 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. 

Falko has been closely cooperating with Embraer since 2014 and chose Eve as its Urban Air Mobility partner due to Embraer’s long record for certifying trusted aircraft for over 52 years. 

“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.

“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 organizations collaborate to lead a new generation of sustainable innovation, in aviation,” said Andre Stein, co-CEO of Eve.
