Flapper and EVE Urban Air Mobility Solutions (EVE), a subsidiary of Embraer, entered into a partnership with the aim of developing the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) market in Latin America.
EVE, which is currently developing an electric vertical take-off and landing vehicle (eVTOL), intends to provide Flapper with 25,000 flight hours per year in some of the region’s main cities: São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, Santiago (Chile ), Bogotá (Colombia), and Mexico City (Mexico).
Both companies are considering providing an on-demand reservation system for UAM. In practice, this means that Flapper and EVE intend to use helicopter operations to collect data for the future development of these air vehicles, already popularly called flying cars.
The signed contract also foresees that Flapper will be able to add to its portfolio 25 EVE vertical take-off and landing electric vehicles.
