Joby’s eVTOL air taxi clears second of four FAA System Reviews
Joby, the developer of electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) planes designed for use in nearing air taxi services, says it has cleared another milestone in its push to obtain Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) aircraft certification by completing the second of four required System Review inspections.
The System Review process strives to monitor the overall architecture viability of next-generation aircraft seeking certification. It also gauges how well companies involved are honing to their own previously established specs and timelines, while also meeting safety targets the regulator sets for aircraft. Last week, Joby hosted FAA officials for their second multi-day, in-house inspection of its eVTOL, receiving another thumbs-up to continue development of the future air taxi.
