Eve Holding, unveiled today at the Farnborough Airshow its first full-sized eVTOL (electric vertical take-off and landing vehicle) cabin mock-up, which reinforces the Company’s human-centred design approach. The mock-up will be showcased at Embraer’s ‘Fly the Future’ exhibition, together with the manufacturer’s sustainable aircraft concepts. From July 18 to 22, visitors will be able to experience the future of regional aviation and Urban Air Mobility (“UAM”) at the Embraer pavilion located at E037. Eve also shared its most recent vehicle configuration as part of the present product design phase.
“This mock-up materialises the cabin concept we have been co-creating with potential users for years. Our solutions were designed considering essential market needs, such as accessibility, safety, sustainability, and ticket price” said Flavia Ciaccia, Vice President of User Experience of Eve.
The company says along with the mock-up experience, visitors will also be able to explore external features of the eVTOL through augmented reality technology.
In addition the company reports that “as part of the ongoing product development, it is presenting the current vehicle design that uses a conventional wing and tail instead of the previous canard configuration. The eight rotors are fixed around the wing, providing vertical take-off and landing capability as well as safety and reliability in a simple and intuitive lift-plus-cruise design.”
