Microflite teams up with Eve to develop Australian eVTOL operations
Microflite aims to tap into the Australian COVID-19 recovery by developing high-tech and low carbon jobs that support transport and tourism. Partnering up with Eve, it aims to inject new mobility solutions to the market.
The partnership aims to develop new services and procedures that will create a safe and scalable operating environment for eVTOL operations together with communities and other industry stakeholders.

Microflite, an Australian helicopter operator and Eve Urban Air, a subsidiary of Embraer, have announced a partnership that lays the foundation for urban air mobility operations in Australia expected to start in 2026.

Microflite and Eve plan to begin their partnership using helicopters as a proof of concept to validate parameters that will apply to future eVTOL aircraft operations. The partnership aims to develop new services and procedures that will create a safe and scalable operating environment for eVTOL operations together with communities and other industry stakeholders.

“This partnership is an exciting development for Microflite. Australia needs a post-COVID lift and what better way to do that than by developing high-tech and low carbon jobs that support transport, tourism and the vibrancy of this wonderful country,” says Jonathan Booth, ceo of Microflite. “Microflite will work closely with Eve and its partners to evaluate the best path to bring this innovative service to customers.”

“Our partnership with Microflite allows Eve to inject innovation and new mobility solutions within the Australian market,” adds Andre Stein, ceo of Eve Urban Air Mobility. “We can deliver a comprehensive solution, including maintenance services and air traffic management, getting ready to introduce our aircraft to Australia, while benefiting from Microflite's extensive local operational experience.”
