Electric aircraft maker Joby Aviation(JOBY.N) will invest up to 500 million to make a new installation in Dayton, Ohio, where it’ll mass produce air hacks, it said on Monday.

The 140-acre point at Dayton International Airport is set to be the first periodical product position for the company, as opposed to the prototypes erected at its airman product line in California.

Joby author JoeBen Bevirt told Reuters that the company is” driving roundly” to win the Federal Aviation Administration instrument for its electric perpendicular takeoff and wharf( eVTOL) aircraft so that it can begin marketable passenger service in 2025.
Joby intends to begin hiring” incontinently” to stand up manufacturing of aircraft factors at being structures at the Dayton point, Bevirt said. Construction of the new product installation will begin in 2024, with operations to start in 2025.

Bevirt declined to note original product rates and how important backing would be incontinently allocated to construct the Dayton installation..

The state of Ohio and several political associations have offered up to 325 million in impulses and benefits to develop the Dayton point,
ultimately, the point could accommodate manufacturing installations that take up more space than the Pentagon, support 2,000 jobs, and product of 500 aircraft per time,

Joby said

Unlike eVTOL challengers like Archer Aviation(ACHR.N) and Beta Technologies, which intend to vend aircraft directly to airlines and logistics companies, Joby’s business model more nearly resembles rideshare apps, where guests can request a lift on an air hack possessed and operated by the company.
While Joby has been flying full-scale aircraft since 2017, it unveiled its first product- a representative prototype in June, which can fit four passengers and an airman.
