Joby Aviation Generates First Revenue, Takes Key Step Towards Certifying Aircraft

The company also announced that it has agreed to a ‘G1’ certification basis for its aircraft with the Federal Aviation Administration (‘FAA’). This agreement lays out the specific requirements that need to be met by Joby’s aircraft for it to be certified for commercial operations. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210209005471/en/ Joby Aircraft in flight in Northern California. Photo credit: Joby Aviation Agility Prime is a unique program that seeks to accelerate the development of a commercial market for advanced air mobility and encourage American innovation. Joby’s participation in the program will provide the US Government with valuable data and insight into the operation and performance of eVTOL aircraft. It also provides Joby with access to key research facilities and equipment, as well as an opportunity to prove out the maturity and reliability of its aircraft years in advance of entering commercial service. “The Agility Prime and Joby partnership is now on an accelerated path to identify the opportunities for early adoption of these aircraft for logistics that provide flexibility to operators and savings to taxpayers. We are also one step closer to the commercialization of a clean, quiet, modern, transportation system,” said Nathan P. Diller, AFWERX Agility Prime Director. The news of Joby generating revenue from the program comes on the heels of the company being awarded the Air Force’s first-ever airworthiness approval for an eVTOL vehicle at the end of 2020. JoeBen Bevirt, Founder and CEO of Joby Aviation, said: “The Agility Prime program represents an invaluable opportunity to understand and accelerate the positive impact of clean, electric aircraft in the US and beyond.” “With ten years of engineering and more than a 1000 test flights behind us, we’re excited to now be playing a key role in demonstrating the potential of this new sector while giving the US Government a front row seat.” Joby also confirmed that it agreed to a ‘G1’ certification basis for its aircraft with the FAA in 2020. A ‘G1’ outlines the criteria that need to be met in order for an aircraft to be certified for civil commercial operations, and reaching the milestone marks a key step on the way towards certifying any new aircraft in the US. Joby’s aircraft will be certified in line with the FAA’s existing Part 23 requirements for Normal Category Airplanes, with special conditions introduced to address requirements specific to Joby’s unique aircraft. These special conditions, defined in the ‘G1’ document, are expected to be published in the US Federal Register in the coming months. Bevirt added, “While we still have several years of aircraft testing ahead of us, we now have a clearly defined, and achievable, path to certifying our aircraft and introducing customer flights.” “Reaching this milestone is a watershed moment for our new industry and I’m tremendously grateful for the many years of hard work the FAA and our in-house aviation safety experts have put into getting us to this point.” About Joby Aviation Joby Aviation is a California headquartered transportation company developing an all-electric vertical takeoff and landing aircraft which it intends to operate as a fast, quiet, and affordable air taxi service from 2024. The zero emissions aircraft, which can transport four passengers and a pilot, can fly up to 150 miles on a single charge and can cruise at 200 mph. It is designed to help reduce urban congestion and accelerate the shift to sustainable modes of transit. Founded in 2009, Joby has raised $820 million in investment and employs more than 500 people.

Recession Could Occur by Presidential Election

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Previous: Coalition to Stop Real Estate Wire Fraud & Qualia Partner Next: Federal Reserve Board Finalizes Risk Profile Rules for Banks About Author: Mike Albanese The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Recession Could Occur by Presidential Election fcd1aa2d-5b26-4754-ab6b-8342360620f8A report by the Council of Foreign Relations projects that a recession could occur as soon as the 2020 Presidential Election. The report references the years preceding the 2008 financial crisis, which saw a rising gap in the growth in home prices and household income, and a “parallel dynamic is playing out” today.“In 2018, as in 2005, housing-price growth began falling rapidly, with significant price drops occurring in several major markets … The trend-line in existing-home sales growth has also been down since 2015, tipping into negative territory at the start of last year. Similar drops have preceded nearly every recession since 1970,” the report states. Additionally, the report says that if these trends continue the economy should expect to see falls in home prices—possibly beginning by mid-2020—dragging down household spending with a falling economy. “Growth has been slowing, with Trump’s tariff war hitting exports. Manufacturing is contracting. Retail sales, excluding autos, have stalled. Consumer confidence is falling,” the report states. How can an possible recession be slowed? The Council of Foreign Relations said a U.S.-China trade deal, which would boost consumer confidence, is not looking like a possibility. “But all signs are that this is unlikely, given Chinese insistence that structural reforms are now off the table,” the report says. The Fed has already cut interest rates twice in 2019, with a possible third cut looming. Commentary from the Council of Foreign Relations said it would “likely take more than 175 basis points of easing to prevent it.” Questions surrounding a possible recession have been a major theme throughout most of 2019, with opinions divided on the topic. “This is going to be a much shorter recession than the last one,” predicts George Ratiu, Senior Economist with realtor.com. “I don’t think the next recession will be a repeat of 2008. … The housing market is in a better position.”Additionally, the majority of economists and analysts believe the recession still has at least a year before it arrives. Just 2% of economists, strategists, academics, and policymakers believe a recession will start this year, according to a recent survey of more than 200 members of the National Association for Business Economics. Meanwhile, 38% believe one will begin in 2020, while 25% anticipate one starting in 2021. Fourteen percent expect it won’t materialize until after 2021.  Sign up for DS News Daily Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Recession Could Occur by Presidential Election Share Save Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Mike Albanese is a reporter for DS News and MReport.
