Eve Urban Air Mobility and Helisul Aviation, one of the largest helicopter operators in Latin America, have announced a partnership that will focus on creating an ecosystem-wide approach to prepare for urban air mobility operations in Brazil. In addition to collaborating on a suite of products and services, the partnership includes an order for up to 50 eVTOLs with deliveries expected to start in 2026.
Over the last few years, Eve and Helisul have been collaborating to evaluate how to co-create solutions for urban air mobility, leveraging Brazil’s existing air taxi infrastructure – one of the largest in the world – for the use of Eve’s electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft (eVTOL).
“This partnership with Eve is cause for great satisfaction to Helisul. Eve is looking far ahead of the market needs and Helisul shall follow all its steps hand-in-hand. With cities growing bigger and traffic more and more congested, our partnership to build intelligent solutions and practices for urban mobility in the big cities will improve quality of life reducing air pollution and moving times with door-to-door transportation.”, said Luis Carlos Munhoz da Rocha, commercial director of Helisul Aviation.
“Disruptive urban air mobility solutions can bring same type of benefits that aviation already brought to longer trips literally closer to people, giving urban commuters more options to move around the city. Our partnership with Helisul Aviation allows us to disrupt Brazil’s already large air taxi infrastructure and it is well-positioned for the future of flight transportation. Our team will provide comprehensive services, including urban air traffic management solutions, while benefiting from Helisul’s unique market position,” said Andre Stein, president and CEO of Eve Urban Air Mobility.
