Aero-TV: Joby Aviation Eyes 2025 Entry Into Service

An eVTOL Company With Big Plans For The Future

ANN correspondent Rex Alexander took a beat to check in with Joby Aviation, getting the news from Head of Government Affairs Greg Bowles on how things are going for the nascent eVTOL industry.

Joby is faced with a complex soup of government regulations at home and abroad, helping to carve out a regulatory niche for aircraft that straddle multiple categories of aeronautical novelty at the same time - Joby’s aircraft sports 6 battery-powered tiltrotors and seating for 4, a never-before-seen recipe in the world of commercial aviation. As such they’re writing the book as they go, working with the Air Force’s AFWERX program and FAA to establish just what the industry needs ahead of planned commercial service in 2025.

Joby’s already moving along at full speed, working on their initial production aircraft and searching for more talent to help. Bowles specifically cites the firm’s need for maintainers, pilots, and more as the Advanced Air Mobility market coalesces into a brand new form of aviation.
