Watch Video: NBC TV Interviews Joby Aviation Head of Product, Eric Allison (9.30’ Long)

The TV news net­work, NBC Bay Area, inter­viewed Joby Avi­a­tion Head of Prod­uct, Eric Alli­son, at the week­end. It is a lengthy piece at 9 min­utes 30 sec­onds long and pre­sen­ter Scott McGrew, puts Joby in a good light. 

McGrew begins by point­ing out, “The Jet­son future is com­ing, but we have to find the right com­pa­ny,” remind­ing view­ers that Kit­ty Hawk, an ear­ly promise of this future, is now no-more. He explains that Joby, on the oth­er hand, “has a real air­craft, car­ry­ing real pilots, and per­form­ing real mis­sions.” His vocal man­ner is a cross between dis­be­lief and excite­ment. 

Alli­son says Joby has been fly­ing pro­to­types for over four years which once again, shows just how far ahead the com­pa­ny is com­pared to its Amer­i­can rivals. An array of sub­jects are dis­cussed includ­ing the all-impor­tant low noise lev­el dur­ing flight com­pared to a heli­copter.
