Air taxi company Joby is applying for certification in the United Kingdom

Joby is pending US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification and received his first approval at the end of May. It is Part 135 Air Carrier Certificate One of three FAA certifications required to operate commercial aircraft.

A simultaneous application to the FAA and the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) should expedite certification and accelerate entry into both markets. Jobbi Aviation CEO Joben Bevirt said in a statement that a collaborative approach to certification will help improve safety and accelerate the adoption of new technologies.

The five-person eVTOL being developed by Jobi has a maximum range of 241 kilometers and a top speed of 321 km/h. Last year, the company debuted on the Nasdaq and entered into a partnership with Toyota.

The Japanese automaker is also planning to offer air taxi services in Japan in partnership with All Nippon Airways (ANA). Jobbi Aviation expects to begin operating its first commercial flights in the United States in 2024. It is not yet known when the eVTOL will be able to fly in the UK. A certification process can sometimes take years.
