Eve names suppliers for eVTOL windows, doors and fuselage components

Eve Air Mobility electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft

Eve Air Mobility has named four additional suppliers for its electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft.

KRD Luftfahrttechnik GmbH (KRD) will supply its KASIGLAS polycarbonate windows, Latecoere will supply the aircraft’s doors while, RALLC and Alltec will both supply fuselage components.

Johann Bordais, CEO of Eve Air Mobility said: “Eve has assembled a strong list of global and local suppliers with a reputation for not only delivering outstanding quality, but doing so reliably.

“These long-term relationships will cover the aircraft’s entire life cycle including all prototypes, production and aftermarket service and operational support.”

KRD, which is headquartered in Germany, will supply custom designed KASIGLAS windows including the cockpit and passenger door windows.

Each window has been developed for extreme durability and their polycarbonate construction will not only minimize the weight of each window but provide additional protection including increased impact resistance.

Latecoere, headquartered in France, will supply the doors for Eve’s eVTOL aircraft. As the world’s leading independent manufacturer of aircraft doors, the company has been recognized for its extremely high standards of safety and performance.

Latecoere supports multiple aircraft manufacturers, including Embraer, and provides design and development, production, certification and in-service support for all of their doors.

RALLC and Alltec, both headquartered in Brazil, were selected to supply various fuselage components. RALLC is a supplier that covers all stages of the manufacturing processes for structural components, providing integrated and innovative solutions for several aerospace companies including Embraer.

Alltec specializes in the development and production of components and subassemblies in high-performance composite materials for the aeronautical, defense and security markets.

Eve’s eVTOL aircraft utilizes eight dedicated propellers for vertical flight and fixed wings to fly on cruise, with no change in the position of these components during flight.

Last year, the company announced that its first eVTOL production facility will be located in the city of Taubaté, in the state of São Paulo, Brazil.

The company has begun assembly of its first full-scale eVTOL prototype which will be followed by a test campaign. Eve’s eVTOL is scheduled to begin deliveries and enter into service in 2026.
