Eve and FlyBIS sign LoI for 40 eVTOLs
Eve Air Mobility and FlyBIS Aviation have agreed a deal for 40 aircraft.
The Caxias do Sul-based startup plans to collaborate with Eve to bring eVTOL operations to Brazil and South America. After starting operations in Brazil’s southern states, FlyBIS plans to expand operations to neighbouring countries and contribute to the implementation and development of Eve’s air mobility ecosystem.
“This new collaboration with FlyBIS will enable us to expand the future of air mobility to Southern areas of Brazil and other South American countries,” said Andre Stein, co-CEO, Eve. “This region has several high-traffic tourist areas that will benefit from eVTOL operations, reinforcing our commitment to fostering the urban air mobility market in different regions around the world.”
FlyBIS is backed by Brave Aviation whose current fleet includes Embraer Phenom 100 as well as other aircraft.
FlyBIS co-founder and CEO, Gustavo Zanettini, said: “We have a strong team in FlyBIS working together with Eve’s outstanding workforce and second-to-none resources to develop and implement this project in the most financially efficient and sustainable way. Our team is very motivated and confident, and we will be working to change future generations’ urban air mobility for a more accessible and cleaner experience.”
With the FlyBIS order included, Eve’s order backlog is now up to 2,770 aircraft, according to the firm.
