Joby Aviation is a California-headquartered transportation company developing and manufacturing an all-electric, vertical take-off and landing aircraft which they intend to operate as a commercial passenger aircraft beginning in 2024.
The company has spent more than a decade developing and testing zero-emissions aircraft that will enable a pilot and four passengers to leapfrog over the congestion below on journeys of five to 150 miles, at speeds of up to 200mph.
The integration of flexible take-off and landing infrastructure in megacities is crucial for the success of Urban Air Mobility (UAM) and for air taxi operations. In order to advance the development of this infrastructure, they have been working with Skyports, a British vertiport developer and operator, since 2019. They developed the VoloPort, which we will show for the first time publicly in Singapore.

In a remote field south of Yangon, Myanmar, tiny mangrove saplings are now roughly 20 inches tall. It’s early proof of technology that could help restore forests at the pace needed to fight climate change. Two operators working with 10 drones can theoretically plant 400,000 trees in a day. Roughly half of the world’s mangrove forests have been lost.
