今年, 皇冠体育官网飞得更快(时速超过205英里), 高(11,300 +英尺), 远(10,800+ miles) and for a greater amount of time (3+ hours in a single day) than ever before. 皇冠体育官网回顾一下, we’re incredibly grateful to have also accomplished many “firsts” along the way. From hard-earned certification milestones to game-changing partnerships, 以下是皇冠体育官网2022年的十大时刻(排名不分先后)!).
Received our 第135部分航空承运人证书 from the Federal Aviation Administration (FFA) – ahead of schedule. 的 第135部分航空承运人证书 is required for Joby to begin on-demand commercial air taxi 操作 in cities and communities across the United States. Receiving this certificate ahead of schedule allowed us to commence trial 操作 using existing aircraft to ensure our software, 操作, and procedures are ready for launch as soon as our eVTOL aircraft is certified.
Completed two of four Systems Reviews required by the FAA as part of our aircraft type certification program. 沿着皇冠体育官网的认证之路, we’ll undergo a series of four FAA audits w在这里 subject matter experts from the agency closely examine our aircraft’s overall safety architecture and our company-wide approach to developing complex safety-critical aircraft systems. 皇冠体育官网已经通过了 四项系统评审中的两项, demonstrating that our aircraft and development processes are on track to satisfy the FAA’s expectations for system-level safety, 冗余, 以及整个飞机结构.
成为第一架eVTOL飞机 提交特定领域认证计划(ASCP) 并成功提交了另外三份. Joby continues to lead the way in certification of eVTOL aircraft 与 FAA. In 2022, we’ve had more than 400 Means of Compliance statements accepted, enabling us to submit and receive acceptance for four area-specific certification plans. 这些文件列出了设计报告的组合, analysis and testing that it will employ to demonstrate compliance with rigorous FAA safety standards for each functional area of the aircraft. 您可以阅读更多皇冠体育的认证方法 在这里.
宣布了一个多年, multi-market commercial and operational 与达美航空合作 Airlines to pioneer home-to-airport transportation for customers. 皇冠体育官网的 与达美航空合作, 世界领先的航空公司, will integrate a Joby-operated service into Delta’s customer-facing channels. 的 first-of-its-kind arrangement will provide customers who travel with Delta through New York and Los Angeles the opportunity to reserve a seat for seamless, short-range journeys to and from city airports with zero operating emissions.
Completed acoustic testing with NASA and successfully demonstrated the aircraft’s revolutionary low noise profile in urban areas. NASA的测量显示 皇冠体育官网的飞机有多安静. 起飞和降落时, 皇冠体育官网的飞机发出的声音相当于正常的谈话声, 在高空飞行时, we expect the sound will barely be perceptible against the ambient environment of cities.
Grew our partnership 与 Department of Defense’s Agility Prime program and brought the potential value of the contract to more than $75M. As Joby works toward our goal of launching a passenger ridesharing service, 皇冠体育官网感谢防务伙伴的支持 和 opportunity it presents to achieve real-world flight 操作 in advance of commercial service. This partnership supports our work on technological enhancements that extend the capabilities of our aircraft and gives us access to testing facilities, 为政府客户提供早期运营经验, 并部分抵消皇冠体育官网的研发成本.
向投资者敞开大门, 新闻, 和 world to demonstrate the possibilities in electric flight with today’s technology. 10月, we hosted over a hundred guests at our manufacturing and flight test facilities in Marina, 加州 第一次乔比实地考察 – an exciting opportunity for us to share the progress we’ve made over a decade of hard work and a glimpse of what will come next. 皇冠体育官网也 邀请美国全国广播公司财经频道拍摄一部皇冠体育愿景的纪录片 以及皇冠体育官网与达美航空的合作.
Formally applied for our aircraft to be certified for use in the UK and Japan. We became the first eVTOL company to apply for an FAA type certificate to be validated by both the 日本民航局(JCAB) 和 英国民航局(CAA). We believe both markets hold considerable opportunity for eVTOLs to provide a new form of clean and affordable urban and regional connectivity.
Scaled manufacturing with our pilot production plant in Marina, CA. In 2022, 皇冠体育官网建立了皇冠体育官网的13,000平方英尺的试点生产设施, CA, w在这里 we continued to progress 与 manufacture of our first production-intent aircraft, 与 机尾部分现已完成 机翼和机身的组装正在顺利进行. 仅今年一年, 皇冠体育官网已经加工了27个,000+金属零件和加工,600+ composite parts – all in support of ramping up manufacturing of our production aircraft.
Unveiled a 生活实验室 passenger terminal in partnership with Skyports Infrastructure. 在未来的日常飞行中, Joby riders will fly quickly and quietly from their starting point to their destination, seamlessly navigating skyports to transfer between Joby flights and first- or last-mile ground transportation. 的 生活实验室 will serve as a prototype for us to conduct customer research and design the perfect experience for our future terminals.
We look forward to sharing our progress with you in the year ahead, 祝大家2023年健康快乐.
