Under the service, Joby Aviation will work to take people from one place to another with its five-seat aircraft. The aircraft is fitted with 6 propellers and looks like a luxurious helicopter. The company has named this aircraft eVTOL. It is a five-seater aircraft that can cover around 250 km on a single charge. According to the company, its flying speed has been given up to 321 km / h.

Joby Aviation is an aerospace company based in California, USA, and is almost ready to take its first flight with its air taxi. The company has obtained the first three necessary approvals for commercial air taxi service. However, the company says that there are still many regulatory approvals that the company has to get. FAA certification means that the company can operate as an aircraft carrier. The company can now start flight testing and develop further tech operations. This includes things like pilot coordinating systems and consumer app development.

The company calls itself Uber of the Air. That is, as Uber provides taxi service on the roads, it will be the leading company in providing air taxi service. Technically, the company still does not have the right to take the common people from one place to another by air. For this, the company will need FAA-type certification.

Even after getting an FAA-type certification, the company will still need a production certification. Without production certification, the company cannot manufacture its own air taxi. After getting the certification, the company will be able to do commercial production of its aircraft. The company has named this aircraft eVTOL. It is a five-seater aircraft that can cover around 250 km on a single charge. According to the company, its flying speed has been given up to 321 km / h.
