Joby Aviation company will build an air taxi factory in Ohio

Electric cars are no longer a futuristic theme and are more than integrated into our everyday normality. In this way, space is now given for other projects that, for now, seem like something just for a film, but that are slowly starting to take shape. In this sense, the company Joby Aviation will build an air taxi factory in the US state of Ohio.

Air taxis are an increasingly close reality

The existence of air taxis is still a concept that people are not familiar with and that they consider to be something much more advanced than what we currently have available. But if in March we reported that Chicago would be the first city in the world to have eVOLT electric air taxis in 2025, the most recent information shows that there are already more significant advances in this segment.

According to the news provided by Reuters, electric aircraft manufacturer Joby Aviation will invest up to 500 million dollars to build a new factory located in Dayton, in the US state of Ohio. According to the information that the company provided this Monday (18), these facilities will aim to mass produce its air taxis. The 140-acre (~57 hectare) space located at Dayton International Airport will then be the company’s first mass production site.

To Reuters, Joby Aviation founder JoeBen Bevirt said the company is joining efforts to achieve Federal Aviation Administration certification for its electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft so it can begin commercial service. of passengers in 2025. It is estimated that construction will begin at the beginning of next year 2025 and that its functions will begin in 2025.

While the executive declined to comment on initial production rates and financing, the company says the state of Ohio as well as several political organizations have offered up to $325 million in incentives and benefits to develop the Dayton site. The new facility is expected to create around 2,000 jobs and is expected to produce around 500 aircraft per year.
