Airborne-Unmanned 01.11.21: Joby's New eVTOL Prototype, NASA Webb!, Skydio 2+

Joby Aviation has completed its second prototype aircraft in an effort to speed up its flight testing schedule heading into 2022, recently receiving its Special Airworthiness Certificate and US Air Force approval.

JoeBen Bevirt, founder and CEO, said the pre-production campaign has been an enormous effort for the young eVTOL design, logging 65 terabytes of test data in 2021 alone. The addition of a second demonstrator will help to quicken the pace, and Joby intends for it to help see the design obtain FAA certification in time for a commercial operations launch in 2024. NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope team fully deployed its 21-foot, gold-coated primary mirror, successfully completing the final stage of all major spacecraft deployments. A joint effort with the European Space Agency and Canadian Space Agency, the Webb mission explores every phase of cosmic history – from within our solar system to the most distant observable galaxies in the early universe. Skydio started off the year with a few bonuses for fans, releasing an upgrade to their flagship drone alongside enhanced AI-backed software utilities for autonomous photography. The youthful company has seen a bumper crop of venture capital as it gears up to take on the biggest names in the drone sphere with its hands-off approach to pilotage. The Skydio 2+ brings slightly better specifications and capabilities. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unmanned!!!
