  1. United, Eve Deepen eVTOL Relationship
    Yesterday, Eve Air Mobility announced that commercial airline United Airlines has made a 15 million dollar investment in the company as well as a conditional purchase of as many as 400 Eve eVTOLs. 200 4-seat aircraft up front with deliveries starting in 2026. 200 options for the same urban electric aircraft are also included. United has been pushing its interest in eVTOL tech recently. Last month, United gave a $10 million deposit to a California-based eVTOL company for 100 aircraft. It is not by accident, more by design. United was the first major U.S. airline to create a corporate venture fund, United Airlines Ventures (UAV), designed to support the company’s 100% green commitment to reach net zero emissions by 2050 without the use of traditional offsets. Through UAV, United has led the industry in investments in eVTOL and electric aircraft, hydrogen fuel cell engines, and sustainable aviation fuel.
  2. "United has made early investments in several cutting-edge technologies at all levels of the supply chain, staking out our position as a leader in aviation sustainability and innovation," said Michael Leskinen, President of United Airlines Ventures. "Today, United is making history again by becoming the first major airline to publicly invest in two eVTOL companies. Our agreement with Eve highlights our confidence in the urban air mobility market and serves as another important benchmark toward our goal of net zero carbon emissions by 2050 – without using traditional offsets. Together, we believe our suite of clean energy technologies will revolutionize air travel as we know it and serve as the catalyst for the aviation industry to move toward a sustainable future."
