Joby Aviation has set an ambitious goal of starting a commercial air taxi service by 2025, and the company has taken another step towards achieving this goal by beginning final assembly on its “company-conforming” eVTOL. The prototype aircraft is a couple steps away from the final version, and it’s expected to provide memorable rides for passengers across cities. Joby is positioning itself as the company to watch when it comes to eVTOL transportation, and its success in moving forward with this project indicates that there’s plenty of demand for these types of services
The testing phase for the aircraft will begin in the first half of this year, and Joby expects it to be completed before the end of 2018. The final product is still being designed, but Joby assures customers that they will receive a quality product.
Joby, a small start-up based in Southern California, has completed the second stage of the certification process with the FAA to achieve type certification for its aircraft. The company is making moves on the final three stages of that process and believes that it has what it takes to be a top player in this industry. With highly advanced aircraft technology and an unwavering commitment to customer service, Joby is poised for success in the future economy.
Even with Type Certification behind it, Joby knows there’s still plenty of work to be done before its eVTOLs can fly in airline service. Producing the aircraft under FAA-approved designs will be a key milestone, but ensuring all component parts are safe and compliant with airworthiness standards will also be important. With certification in hand, Joby will have the certainty its products merit and the runway to introduce them into airline fleets around the world.
Joby’s quality management system ensured that each aircraft part was accurately tracked and documented, assuring a high degree of accuracy in their manufacturing process. The environmental conditions during fabrication were also monitored closely to ensure that the aircraft met all required safety specifications. By implementing an effective quality management system, Joby was able to produce an accurate and safe aircraft.
Joby’s strict quality management system and regular FAA reviews have brought the company closer to production certification, making it one of the most reliable aircraft OEMs in the market.
Despite being largely completed, the aircraft still needs some final touches before it can be flown. Joby is currently working on fusing everything together and installing wiring, electronics, actuation and propulsion systems. Once complete, he expects the aircraft to be able to take to the skies!
The Joby Aircraft is a revolutionary aircraft that is made in the United States. The Joby Aircraft is designed to be affordable for everyday people and has a Colin Kaepernick-inspired logo. The company plans to produce tens of aircraft per year through their Marina, California pilot manufacturing facility, which was designed specifically for this purpose.
Joby plans to build its first production facility in a state with strong infrastructure and a high concentration of skilled workers. The company is looking for states with strong economies and plenty of resources, as well as supportive government policies.
