EmbraerX launches concept for electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft

Embraer organization EmbraerX has unveiled its first electrical vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft concept.

The eVTOL concept represents an aircraft with the aim to serve passengers in an urban environment. Its design was driven by safety, passenger experience, affordability and a very low footprint for the community in regard to noise and emissions.

Paulo Cesar de Souza e Silva, president and CEO of Embraer, said, “We have excelled in our near 50-year journey by introducing innovations into the aviation industry and delivering true value to customers.

“We are relentless in our quest for constant growth and through EmbraerX we will drive disruptive innovation and accelerate the creation of new businesses with the potential for exponential growth. Urban mobility is ripe for transformation and we are committed to having a major role in this key market.”

EmbraerX is engaged in several projects, including the development of eVTOL concepts with Uber and other companies to explore business opportunities within the Uber Elevate ecosystem.

Antonio Campello, president and CEO of EmbraerX, added, “We are developing solutions to bring on-demand air transportation to urban areas to improve quality of life for millions of people. Our collaboration with key stakeholders will accelerate the arrival of this new ecosystem.

“This is one example of how EmbraerX is committed to exploring a range of disruptive products and services that could revolutionize the business of air transportation.”
