Joby Showcases Low Noise Profile Through NASA Testing

Joby Aviation has demonstrated its low noise profile by sound testing its aircraft with NASA.

The data was part of NASA’s Advanced Air Mobility National Campaign and was collected over two weeks of testing.

The aircraft measured 45.2 A-weighted decibels (dBA) at a height of 1,640 feet (500 meters). It will be almost silent when flying above dense urban environments.

The test was undertaken using NASA’s Mobile Acoustics Facility at Joby’s Electric Flight Base in California.

“We’re thrilled to show the world just how quiet our aircraft is by working with NASA to take these measurements,” states JoeBen Bevirt, Founder and CEO of Joby. “With an aircraft this quiet, we have the opportunity to completely rethink how we live and travel today, helping to make flight an everyday reality in and around cities.”

The data will be used to calibrate flight software as well as take-off and landing processes. This will ensure the aircraft keeps a low noise profile.

TMAP recently joined Joby and SKT to bring aerial ridesharing services to South Korea.
