Eve Air Mobility, which is hoping to start operations in 2026, will showcase its electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft in Paris. The upcoming airshow is the first appearance for the company after becoming a public company.
The company eVTOL has already amassed 2,770 orders, the industry’s largest order backlog. In addition to orders for its aircraft, the company has seen strong interest and a growing number of customers purchasing its Urban Air Traffic Management (Urban ATM) software and its portfolio of agnostic services and operations solutions.
“The Paris Air Show brings together aviation’s global players and showcases the biggest news and the latest advances in the aerospace sector,” said Andre Stein, co-CEO of Eve. “Eve comes to Paris with tremendous momentum as we continue the development of our eVTOL, including progressing toward key program milestones.”
Eve’s eVTOL cabin mock-up showcases Eve’s human-centered design, a quiet, efficient, and sustainable zero-emission eVTOL, and explores its internal features. The vehicle design uses a conventional wing with eight rotors fixed around it, providing vertical take-off and landing capabilities in a simple lift-plus-cruise design, with an accessible seat configuration for a pilot and four passengers.
Visitors to Eve’s display will also be able to experience a virtual flight on its eVTOL aircraft through virtual reality technology. The technology, which requires a special headset, enables them to have a unique sense of reality by interacting with and feeling what flying on the company’s eVTOL will look like.
Members of Eve’s leadership team will participate in multiple discussions during the Paris Air Show. Andre Stein will join a panel on new technologies at ISTAT Sustainability Symposium and also give a fireside chat to discuss Eve’s Concepts of Operations to make advanced air mobility a reality. David Rottblatt, senior vice president, Sales, Marketing and Government Affairs, will discuss the future of airspace and the technology and infrastructure required to enable eVTOL flights worldwide.
