NASAが Joby Aviationの全eVTOLの飛行テストを行うという記事から..
小さな積み重ねの構想、プロトタイプ作成、Flight Test等などから、実際の飛行に適切で安全かつ効率化 現実化の実現が達成されます。
Have a good weekend !
The first official tests of Joby Aviation’s all-electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) vehicle have begun. NASA is leading these tests, which it’s doing to foster the development of similarly advanced aircraft.
This marks the first inclusion of an eVTOLvehicle in NASA’s Advanced Air Mobility National Campaign. By partaking in the developmental flight tests of a commercial aircraft, NASA hopes to “advance airspace mobility” in the United States, and “help integrate air taxis, drones and other inventive new vehicles into the national airspace,” according to an agency press kit.
Tests of Joby Aviation’s eVTOL will run from August 30 to September 10, and they’re happening at the company’s Electric Flight Base near Big Sur, California. Joby Aviation, a California-based aerospace company, is aiming to launch its air taxi service in 2024, but it must meet the requirements set out by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). These tests, with NASA helping out, are a step in that direction.
