Jetex and Eve join forces to imagine a safe, accessible and green air mobility ecosystem.
Jetex, an award-winning global leader in executive aviation, and Eve Urban Air Mobility, an Embraer company, signed a Memorandum of Understanding and today announced a partnership aimed at developing the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) ecosystem.
UAM will make air commuting more accessible and convenient for everyone. 100% electric, quiet and safe, electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft are the future of transportation aimed at easing congestion and bypassing any potential ground mobility restrictions.
The creation of disruptive and widely accessible UAM solutions will help democratize mobility by making it more accessible, affordable and offering communities more options. The new eVTOL aircraft concept results from a broad range of tests and simulations, aiming at operational optimization for the urban environment, considering high reliability, low operating costs, a lower noise footprint, being fully electric powered and progressively autonomous.
With their global expertise, Jetex and Eve will explore the possibilities to develop UAM infrastructure in various locations, map potential operations in different environments and their efficient integration. A recognized leader in exceptional customer service, Jetex will lend its experience to design a seamless passenger journey, which will be aimed at utmost comfort and convenience. Jetex will also work closely with different authorities to ensure that the new concept complies with local regulations and requirements.
“Jetex is a recognized leader in innovation and we always seek new ways to integrate new concepts ahead of the market. The new partnership will allow us to support Eve’s aircraft and product development process, which will help guide the integration of UAM with our overall operations,” said Adel Mardini, Founder & CEO of Jetex.
Backed by Embraer’s more than 50-year history of aircraft manufacturing and certification expertise, Eve unveils a unique value proposition by offering a suite of products and services. Eve’s zero-emission and low noise eVTOL represents a simple and intuitive design that continues to reach development milestones, including the first flight of the engineering simulator in July 2020, and a proof of concept in October 2020.
