Eve and Nautilus Aviation Partner to Develop Urban Air Mobility Operations in Australia

Eve Urban Air Mobility, an Embraer company, and Nautilus Aviation, a division of Morris Group and Northern Australia’s largest helicopter operator, have announced a partnership focused on accelerating the development of Urban Air Mobility (UAM) ecosystem in Australia. The partnership will see the introduction of Eve’s electric vertical takeoff and landing aircraft (eVTOL) serving some of Queensland’s most iconic tourism attractions including the Great Barrier Reef.

Nautilus has ordered 10 of Eve’s eVTOL aircraft.

As part of the partnership, Nautilus has ordered 10 of Eve’s eVTOL aircraft, with flights taking off over the Great Barrier Reef by 2026. Morris Group Founder and CEO, Chris Morris said the new partnership with Eve accelerates the progress towards 100% of scenic flights over the Great Barrier Reef coming from zero-emission electric aviation and is in line with Morris Group’s commitment to reach net-zero emission by 2030 across all of its businesses.

Morris Group Founder and CEO, Chris Morris, said:

“This partnership is an exciting development for Nautilus Aviation and Morris Group. We believe economic success and environmental sustainability go hand-in-hand and aim to strengthen and enrich the environments in which we work. Eve’s eVTOL technology will integrate seamlessly into our operations to deliver a range of exciting zero-emission tourism experiences.”

 

Nautilus Aviation CEO, Aaron Finn said Nautilus has had an Advanced Ecotourism Certification for 8 years, however, it has been hard to avoid the biggest impact of greenhouse gas emissions from the burning of fuel in the company’s helicopters.

Nautilus Aviation CEO, Aaron Finn, said:

“This will allow us to provide emission-free and quiet tours over the Great Barrier Reef, providing an unmatched eco-experience to our customers.”

 

Benefitting from a startup mindset and backed by Embraer’s more than 50-year history of aircraft manufacturing and certification expertise, Eve unveils a unique value proposition by positioning itself as an ecosystem partner by offering a suite of products and services with the highest levels of safety standards. Eve’s human-centered, eVTOL design combines disruptive innovation and a simple and intuitive design. In addition to the aircraft program, Eve is harnessing the expertise of both Embraer and Atech, a subsidiary of the Embraer Group, in providing globally recognized air traffic management software to create the solutions that will help safely scale the UAM industry going forward.

Andre Stein, President, and CEO of Eve, said the initiative was an important milestone for the company:

“Our partnership with Nautilus Aviation and Morris Group will see Eve aircraft serving Australia’s iconic tourism attractions with sustainable, zero-emissions low-noise, journeys. We share the same vision toward a carbon-neutral future for air mobility and this is a great use case for the solutions Eve is bringing to the market, including our 100% electric eVTOL and comprehensive customer support and air traffic management solutions.”
