 Joby completes submission of stage three certification plans to the FAA

Joby Aviation today announced it has submitted all of its Certification Plans to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), “marking further progress toward completing the third of five stages required to certify its aircraft for commercial use,” said the company.

The company says in the third stage of the FAA type certification process (“Certification Plans”), Joby specifies the tests, analyses, and design reports the company intends to perform to demonstrate compliance with each safety regulation that applies to the company’s aircraft, as defined in the second stage (“Means of Compliance”).

Joby reports its stage three submittals include about a dozen Area-Specific Certification Plans (ASCPs), which cover both hardware and software aspects of every system onboard Joby’s five-seat eVTOL aircraft, including its flight controls, energy storage and distribution system, and propulsion system. In addition to submitting all of its ASCPs, as expected, Joby says it has also submitted all other Certification Plans comprising the third stage of its aircraft type certification programme, including detailed plans for aircraft cybersecurity and systems safety.
