Joby Aviation Acquires More Floor Space

Expansions to Dayton Facility Presage Increased Production

Joby Aviation announced the acquisition of a new facility on the premises of the Dayton International Airport in Ohio, with plans to use it as a primary production line.

The facility was "underutilized" by its previous tenants, according to Joby. They have found the local Ohio economy quite accommodating to their plans of building more of the eVTOL tester, so they will be moving full speed ahead to finish their Dayton line. Once at full tilt with an accompanying facility in the plans, they believe it will be able to put out more than 500 aircraft per year.

"We're pleased to be able to acquire an underutilized facility at Dayton International Airport and repurpose it as a modern, high-tech manufacturing center to serve as our initial manufacturing footprint in the region. Later this year, we expect to begin subtractive manufacturing of titanium and aluminum aircraft parts as we continue to grow our workforce in Dayton," said Didier Papadopoulos, President of Aircraft OEM at Joby.

"I am deeply appreciative to the Dayton community, and Ohio more broadly, for the warm welcome we have received as well as the high level of interest in joining our team. We look forward to continued collaboration and to growing our presence in the Miami Valley region as we build the future of flight in the birthplace of aviation."
