Singapore 2024: Eve Air Mobility names suppliers for wings and pilot controls

Eve Air Mobility at the Singapore Air Show has named two new suppliers for its electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft. According to the company, Aciturri will be responsible for the development and manufacturing of the wing skins and spars as well as the leading and trailing edges of the wing and Crouzet will supply the pilot controls, specifically the inceptor (control stick). Both suppliers have signed agreements that cover the aircraft’s life cycle including prototype production and aftermarket service and operational support.

“Aciturri has a wealth of experience in developing aerostructures for multiple types of aircraft” according to the press release. “Specifically, the company’s experience and expertise in engineering and sustainably manufacturing aerostructures for the Urban Air Mobility segment led to their selection to produce the wing for Eve’s eVTOL. Aciturri is a founding member of Clean Aviation – the benchmark public-private initiative in the EU for the development of new aeronautical technologies.

“Crouzet will manufacture and supply the pilot controls, specifically the inceptor, for Eve’s eVTOL. The company has more than a century of manufacturing expertise and is recognised for producing high-quality mechatronic components for numerous industries including Aerospace, Transportation and Industry. The eVTOL’s inceptor will be ergonomically designed to ensure pilot comfort and provide immediate response to pilot inputs.

“Eve’s eVTOL aircraft utilises a lift+cruise configuration with 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 while ensuring high performance and safety. While offering numerous advantages including lower cost of operation, fewer parts, optimised structures and systems, it has been developed to offer efficient thrust with low sound.”
