The aviation industry-specificity and flexibility of IFS Cloud makes it a perfect fit for organisations like Joby that are shaping the future of flight.
IFS Cloud for Aviation Maintenance will provide Joby with an advanced end-to-end maintenance software solution for its eVTOL aircraft across key functional areas.

Joby Aviation has selected IFS Cloud for Aviation Maintenance for its eVTOL aircraft maintenance processes. This will provide an advanced, end-to-end software solution across key functional areas including engineering, records management, operations and planning, to support the OEM's expansions plan and to ensure the highest standards of safety and efficiency.

Matthew Lykins, aircraft maintenance lead at Joby, says: "At Joby, we are at the forefront of revolutionising travel with our eVTOL aircraft. Ensuring the seamless operation and maintenance of these aircraft throughout their lifecycle requires an equally innovative software solution. That's why we have chosen IFS as our trusted partner. The IFS solution offers a robust software foundation that can evolve and adapt to meet our growing needs, from the initial testing and regulatory approval phases to the full-scale operations of the Joby aircraft."

Scott Helmer, president, aerospace and defence at IFS, adds: "We are thrilled to be working with Joby to manage the operation and maintenance of one of the world's most advanced air vehicles. IFS has been closely tracking the growth in advanced air mobility for some time, and the aviation industry-specificity and flexibility of IFS Cloud makes us a perfect fit for organisations that are shaping the future of flight."
