The Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) market, represented by electric vertical take-off and landing vehicles (eVTOL), popularly known as “flying cars”, is very close to taking off in earnest. And Brazil has already assumed a relevant role in this scenario. Therefore, MundoGEO will hold the 1st edition of Expo eVTOL, an event dedicated to these innovative aircraft, between May 21 and 23, 2024, at Expo Center Norte – Pavilhão Amarelo, in São Paulo.  The trade fair and Forum will take place in parallel with other MundoGEO events — DroneShow Robotics, SpaceBR Show and MundoGEO Connect.

Brazilian leadership in this market has two fronts. The first is led by Eve Air Mobility, an Embraer company, which is developing an eVTOL for passenger transport and which currently has the largest backlog in the world, totaling more than 2,800 vehicles for companies in different countries, including major players in the aeronautical industry, such as United Airlines, Republic Airways, Blade Aviation, Azorra, SkyWest, BAE Systems, among others. The company’s expectation is that its eVTOLs will enter service in 2026.

Another aspect that puts Brazil in the spotlight is the number of aircraft that are planned to fly across the country in the coming years. Based on the agreements disclosed by the companies involved, the country has ordered 780 eVTOLs, behind only the United States and China.  Seven companies are part of this list — Avantto, Azul, Flapper, FlyBis, Gol, Helisul and Voar —, with vehicles from Eve itself, in addition to the German Lilium and the British Vertical Aerospace. Brazilian relevance in this regard is not surprising, especially given the current fleet of helicopters, one of the largest in the world, and which places, for example, São Paulo as the “helicopter capital of the world”.

With the imminent entry into operation of these aircraft, it is important to bring together the main players in this market in Brazil, to discuss various aspects, from regulation, air traffic, infrastructure and operations, to energy, sustainability, human resources and the involvement of society and public bodies. This is what Expo eVTOL and its Forum scheduled for May 22nd and 23rd, 2024 will do, with an extensive and in-depth program on this market, without any precedent in the country.

“Together with the Forum, we will also have the first trade fair of products, services and technologies related to Advanced Air Mobility.  Furthermore, there will be the opportunity for companies to connect through a Business Roundtable, promoting the local market for these innovative vehicles”, pointed out MundoGEO CEO, Emerson Granemann.

The Forum will have simultaneous translation into Portuguese, English and Spanish, and will take place inside the fair, where exhibitors from the sector will show visitors the main innovations in technology related to “flying cars”.
