Checkout This 150+ Mile Flight On The Joby Electric VTOL Prototype
Joby Aviation recently completed what they believe is the longest eVTOL flight to date, exceeding 150 miles in a single flight, including a vertical take-off and landing. The 1 hour 17 minute flight was achieved with a full-size prototype earlier this month during developmental flight testing.
Commenting on the milestone, the founder and CEO, Joeben Bevirt, said: “We’ve achieved something that many thought impossible with today’s battery technology.”
“By doing so we’ve taken the first step towards making convenient, emissions-free air travel between places like San Francisco and Lake Tahoe, Houston and Austin, or Los Angeles and San Diego an everyday reality.”
