SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Brazilian planemaker Embraer SA said on Tuesday its subsidiary Eve has entered a partnership with lessor Falko Regional Aircraft on electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft.

The deal could result in an order of 200 eVTOLs from UK-based Falko, Embraer said in a securities filing.

The companies aim to "develop a global network of eVTOL operators," it said.
