  1. Part 135 FAA Certification Achieved By Joby Aviation
    In a hugely important step towards entering into service (EIS), Joby Aviation has received Part 135 certification from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). This is a key piece of certification that will allow the company to commence on-demand air-taxi services in the future. The timeline shortened significantly as this approval was expected to come in the second half of 2022. However, it isn't the only part of approvals needed for EIS. Joby Aviation also needs to achieve Type Certification (TC) of the aircraft as also attain a Production Certificate (PC) which would allow them to produce the aircraft on commercial scale for customers.
  2. Bonny Simi, Head of Air Operations and People at Joby, and one of the Company’s FAA-approved pilots, stated: "The procedures we’ve prepared lay a foundation for our future eVTOL operations. Over the coming months, we will use our Part 135 certificate to exercise the operations and customer technology platforms that will underpin our multi-modal ridesharing service, while also refining our procedures to ensure seamless journeys for our customers." To achieve the Part 135 certification Joby Aviation had to submit in excess of 850 pages of manuals for approval and required Joby’s initial set of pilots to demonstrate mastery of the Company’s procedures and training under FAA observation.
