Rio is one of the world's most congested and busiest cities.  Eve-Senna's main goals are to democratize flying taxis by making travel in them inexpensive and accessible. Another key player in the development project is Helisud Aviation, which is one of Latin America's biggest helicopter providers. Highly Advanced Tech With Senna, the Eve project is hitting new heights.  The eV
