Joby Aviation announced yesterday the location of their long-term, large-scale manufacturing facility at Dayton, Ohio.
Concurrently, Joby Aviation is continuing to expand their research and development, job creation, and production facilities here at the Marina Municipal Airport. Mayor Bruce Delgado of Marina said, “We are excited that our partner, Joby Aviation is continuing to lead the development of electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft (eVTOL) and that Joby will be expanding their facilities in Marina.” The City of Marina is supporting Joby Aviation’s submittal today of a $9 million-dollar CalCompetes grant to expand their mid-range production capacity at the Marina airport by building a new 200,000 square foot building. This will increase their production capacity at the Marina Municipal Airport from 4 aircraft per year to 50 aircraft per year. This will also more than double their research and development and production capacity here in Marina.
Joby Aviation is moving forward with the next revolution in aerospace development with their industry leading eVTOL aircraft which will support the next generation of passenger flight service around the world. Marina’s abundant open space with more than 500 acres for development at the Marina Municipal Airport combined with our strong regional economy, our ideal lifestyle living on the Central California Coast, proximity to Silicon Valley, education partners of UC Santa Cruz and Cal State University at Monterey Bay, and our abundant regional activities continue to make Marina a welcoming diverse city, and an ideal destination for companies, families and businesses to locate.
