The Science Behind Mobility

Every year in the United States, the average person spends a total of 9 days stuck in traffic. With the predicted rise of Mega-Cities, congestion in urban areas will likely be amplified exponentially. The Joby s2 is a two seater VTOL electric airplane capable of quietly transporting passengers without the need for substantial infrastructure. At Joby Aviation, we believe that this aircraft will trigger a complete paradigm shift in transportation and urban design. Because of the variety of scientific disciplines involved, building and optimizing the s2 represents huge engineering and organizational challenges.
