This Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was announced at the Dubai Airshow to support the introduction and scaling of UAM for operators across multiple countries.

It builds upon an existing partnership between the two companies to make UAM a safe, efficient and sustainable reality.

Johann Bordais, CEO of Eve said:

“Our first association with NATS began in early 2021 as part of the UK UAM Consortium with the UK CAA Regulatory Sandbox, developing a concept of operations for the London environment, including air traffic management arrangements and proposing new regulatory solutions. Our work with NATS throughout the years both fortifies our newly established relationship and supports our forthcoming projects and future endeavours designed to transform the urban air mobility sector globally.”

Previously, Eve led a UK Concept of Operations (CONOPS) which was developed in partnership with the UK Civil Aviation Authority (UK CAA) and global companies, including NATS. This project leveraged data to focus on necessary solutions for near-term UAM concerns in London.

Since July 2022, Eve and NATS have also been part of the Future Flight Challenge through the Advanced Mobility Ecosystem Consortium with leading British aviation companies. This programme aims to accelerate the progress of new technologies and advanced aviation solutions.

NATS Services MD, Guy Adams said:

“We already work closely with Eve as part of the UK Future Flight Phase 3 AMEC project, working to prepare UK airspace for future UAM operations. Going forward, we intend to grow our collaborative efforts to explore future traffic management products and solutions worldwide and enable the introduction and scaling of UAM across many countries in a consistent, high-performance and safe approach.”

This latest collaboration will use Eve’s Urban ATM software, which is an agnostic solution for enabling the integration of all airspace users in the urban environment.

This capability is crucial to support the safety, efficiency and improvement of the entire UAM ecosystem, including fleet and vertiport operators.
