Our Take on EVA
EVA was founded in May of 2017, and plans the first flight of their X01 for 2019, with certification completion and deployment to market by 2022. If the company can hold to their timeline and stay on budget, then they'll be in a competitive position to sell their product. Stay tuned in 2019 for the first test flight of their vehicle.
