  1. Joby Halfway Through Four System Review By FAA
    Joby Aviation is continuing to make progress towards their certification of their Joby eVTOL. The company recently completed the second of four System reviews required by the American-based Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The series of System Reviews serve to validate the overall architecture of the aircraft and ensure the Company’s development process is on track to satisfy the FAA’s safety objectives associated with complex aircraft systems. The System Reviews take place alongside the ongoing submission of Means of Compliance, area-specific certification plans, and other certification documents that cover specific elements of the Joby aircraft and its systems.
  2. They completed the first review earlier this year and now the second review has been successfully concluded. This timeline should see them with the commencement of operations by 2025. In May, Joby received its Part 135 Air Carrier Certificate from the FAA, enabling the Company to operate a commercial air taxi service in the United States. Didier Papadopoulos, Head of Aircraft OEM at Joby, commented: "Progress on certification is a key area of focus for this nascent sector, and we're pleased to mark our continued leadership with the successful completion of our second System Review. We’re confident that our aircraft design is on track to meet the FAA’s expectations regarding system-level safety, redundancy, and overall aircraft architecture. We’re grateful to the FAA for their dedication to safety and deep engagement on our ongoing certification program."
