Bristow Group and Eve Urban Air Mobility have entered into a memorandum of understanding to work together to develop an AOC for Eve’s eVTOL aircraft. The partners will develop an urban air mobility operating model utilising Bristow’s experience in safely transporting passengers and cargo. As part of the deal Bristow has placed an order for up to 100 eVTOLs with delivery due to begin in 2026.

With over 70 years of transport experience in operations Bristow will aid Eve in its proposition to offer a comprehensive suite of UAM products and services for various regions and missions. The UAM operating environment will focus on vehicle and vertiport design, regulatory development for the operating environment, eVTOL certification and autonomous operation.

Eve’s plan is to develop services-based capabilities to support and optimise the performance and utilisation of eVTOLs in operation and integrate with existing and next-generation air traffic management systems.

“This strategic MOU outlines the continued development of a comprehensive UAM model between Bristow and Eve for an eVTOL that could potentially reshape the market for all electric vertical lift with zero emissions and lower operating costs. This allows us to expand our expertise to provide sustainable, innovative and efficient vertical lift into new potential end markets,” says Bristow president and chief executive officer Chris Bradshaw.
