Eve, Aviair and HeliSpirit announce partnership with an order of up to 50 eVTOLs

The collaboration contemplates an order of up to 50 electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft (eVTOL) with flights commencing from 2026 by Aviair or HeliSpirit.

SINGAPORE – Eve UAM, LLC (“Eve”), an Embraer S.A. (“Embraer”) company, Aviair and HeliSpirit, part of the HM Consolidated group, announced at the Singapore Airshow a partnership between Eve and HeliSpirit. The collaboration contemplates an order of up to 50 electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft (eVTOL) with flights commencing from 2026 by Aviair or HeliSpirit.

Aviair and HeliSpirit are multi-award winning operators that serve some of Western Australia’s most iconic tourist attractions in the Kimberley, South-West, and Greater Perth regions. The new partnership will add eVTOLs to the company’s existing fleet of over 50 rotary and fixed-wing aircraft and introduce Eve’s zero-emission aircraft into service in these locations.

Aviair and HeliSpirit Managing Director, Michael McConachy said, “this year marks 20 years of HeliSpirit being eco-accredited as a green travel leader, entering us into the Eco Tourism Australia Hall of Fame, so this is great timing to commit to significantly reducing our carbon footprint by operating zero-emission electric aircraft.”

“Eve’s eVTOL technology is well-aligned with our business model and desire to be at the forefront of carbon-neutral solutions for the aviation industry. The low-noise footprint of the aircraft makes them particularly well-suited to operations in sensitive natural settings, including national parks and World Heritage-listed areas, as well as for urban transfers providing quick and efficient solutions for both business and tourism travellers,” Mr. McConachy added.

This initiative is a significant milestone for Eve. Our partnership opens up an important market in Western Australia that will see our aircraft serving Australia’s iconic tourist attractions with zero-emission and low-noise flights. We share a common vision of a carbon-neutral future for air mobility, supported by Eve’s eVTOL, comprehensive service and support network, and air traffic management solutions,” said Andre Stein, co-CEO of Eve.
