Eve Urban Air Mobility, an Embraer company, and Microflite, an Australian helicopter operator, have today announced a partnership that will lay the foundation for urban air mobility operations in Australia that is expected to start in 2026.
According to a company press release:
“Microflite and Eve plan to begin their partnership using helicopters, where appropriate, as a proof of concept to validate parameters that will apply to future electrical vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft operations, also known in the market as EVA (Electrical Vertical Aircraft). This partnership also aims to develop new services and procedures that will create a safe and scalable operating environment for EVA operations together with communities and other industry stakeholders.
“Microflite has worked with Eve since 2019 by contributing to the Concept of Operations developed jointly between Eve and Airservices Australia. This work laid the foundation for exploring new and practical concepts to safely facilitate the introduction of air taxis using Melbourne, Australia.
