Electric Aircraft Must Be Quieter Than Current Aircraft To Be Accepted in Cities
The ability to operate within dense urban environments is critical to the business models of many new eVTOL aircraft developers. Companies know that these aircraft will only be accepted by communities if they can operate far more quietly than existing aircraft. To show how this translates to real-life operations, Joby conducted tests to measure noise levels from its four-passenger aircraft flying across the same measuring point at the same altitude and speed as five other aircraft. Turn up the sound and decide for yourself if you could live with what you hear.
