Eve names suppliers for eVTOL windows, doors and fuselage components

Eve Air Mobility has named four additional suppliers for its electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft. KRD Luftfahrttechnik GmbH (KRD), Latecoere, RALLC and Alltec.

According to the press release:

  • “KRD, which is headquartered in Germany, will supply custom designed KASIGLAS windows including the cockpit and passenger door windows.
  • “Latecoere, headquartered in France, will supply the doors for Eve’s eVTOL aircraft.
  • “RALLC and Alltec, both headquartered in Brazil, were selected to supply various fuselage components.
  • “Alltec specialises in the development and production of components and subassemblies in high-performance composite materials for the aeronautical, defence and security markets.

“Eve’s eVTOL aircraft utilises eight dedicated propellers for vertical flight and fixed wings to fly on cruise, with no change in the position of these components during flight. The latest concept includes an electric pusher powered by dual electric motors that provide propulsion redundancy with the goal of ensuring the highest levels of performance and safety. While offering numerous advantages such as lower cost of operation, fewer parts, optimised structures, and systems, it has been developed to offer efficient thrust with low sound.

“Last year, the company announced that its first eVTOL production facility will be located in the city of Taubaté, in the state of São Paulo, Brazil. The company has begun assembly of its first full-scale eVTOL prototype which will be followed by a test campaign. Eve’s eVTOL is scheduled to begin deliveries and enter into service in 2026.”
