Eve makes sales and plans routes with Falko
Eve and Falko are to develop a global operator network with a potential order for 200 eVTOLs. The two companies will also collaborate on initial routes for lessee operators.
Falko has an option on 200 Eve eVTOL aircraft.

Embraer subsidiary Eve UAM and UK regional aircraft lessor Falko Regional Aircraft have signed a letter of intent for a potential order for 200 of Eve’s eVTOL aircraft and a commercial partnership to develop a global network of eVTOL operators in support of urban air mobility missions.

The companies will begin by establishing a working group to collaborate with Falko’s existing operators to develop initial route networks where Eve 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 those aircraft.

“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," says co-CEO Andre Stein.

Falko has been closely cooperating with Embraer since 2014 and chose Eve as its urban air mobility partner because of Embraer’s 52 year record for certifying trusted aircraft.

“I am thrilled to announce this huge development in our long standing and successful relationship with Embraer," says Falko CEO Jeremy Barnes. "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.”
