Hundreds of ‘air taxies’ to be manufactured in Ohio: governor

A new manufacturing plant to build electric planes that can take off and land vertically will be built in Dayton, Ohio — the birthplace of aviation.

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine (R) and Joby Aviation announced the agreement Monday, which promises to deliver up to 500 aircraft per year at the Dayton International Airport and support up to 2,000 jobs. The 140-acre site for the manufacturing facility will be located at a site near the airport, which is also near the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and the headquarters of the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratories.
