The Federal Aviation Administration has provided crucial insight into how it plans to certify electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft with the long-awaited release of proposed airworthiness criteria for Joby Aviation’s five-seat eVTOL, officially called the JAS4-1.
The criteria, which spell out the requirements the aircraft must meet in order to obtain type certification,went online Monday in advance of their publication as a proposed rule in the Federal Register on November 8. They contain new and modified definitions and requirements that apply specifically to Joby’s fully electric, tilt-propeller aircraft, which is distinct from an airplane or helicopter but combines characteristics of both.
