About ZEVA

Point to Point Travel

Our History

ZEVA was founded in 2017 to compete in the Boeing GoFly competition and then build a business on the back of that effort. ZEVA’s first vehicle is called Zero and will transform the transportation landscape for mission critical travel. Stephen Tibbitts along with Ben Gould began the initial design studies and were accompanied by a growing team of engineers and designers. Team ZEVA has grown to about 25 people of a variety of disciplines. Groundwork for eVTOL (electric vertical take-off and landing) was being laid by Mr. Tibbitts as early as 2003 and in 2005 he submitted a grant proposal to NASA on the subject with ground-breaking concepts. Frustrated with GA (general aviation) and the specifically with the issue that hundreds of small airports have vanished. It is no longer possible to fly in a small GA aircraft and go where you want to go. He realized that vertical take-off and landing aircraft were going to be the solution because they don’t require a landing strip but rather a vertiport which has a much smaller and affordable footprint.

Tibbitts is a serial entrepreneur and ZEVA is his 5th startup company. He has the ability to foresee selected mega-trends and eVTOL is an emerging phenomenon that represents one of the largest economic disruptions this century. ZEVA has an early mover advantage and is poised to become a market leader.
