NASA and the U.S. Air Force are testing Joby Aviation’s eVTOL air taxi for potential civilian and military applications, building on NASA’s existing Advanced Air Mobility research and aiming to redefine future air transportation.

A new air taxi from the manufacturer Joby Aviation will allow NASA to evaluate how this kind of vehicle could be integrated into our skies for everyday use, while the Air Force researches its potential military use.

On September 25, Joby announced the delivery of one of their air taxis – an electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft – through a funded contract with their customer, the U.S. Air Force AFWERX Agility Prime program. NASA has an interagency agreement with AFWERX to use the aircraft for testing concentrated on how such vehicles could fit into the national airspace.

Good luck with that.
