Earlier, the company revealed an electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft designed specifically for long-distance travel.
The most important factor that will be tested is the noise indicators of this new mode of transport. The acoustic parameters are especially important because the integration of eVTOL into the transport infrastructure directly depends upon it.
Up to fifty special microphones will be used in the tests, and based on their performance, the company management will decide the future of Joby. Additionally, NASA will notify the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of the test results.
The new electric flying taxi can fly over 240 km out of a single charge and reach a speed of 320 km/h.
