Joby Aviation stock forecast – what to expect after the RTP merger

This announcement made waves on Wallstreet, as tech innovator Joby Aviation announced its plans to launch its Air Taxi service in 2024. The aviation company is now listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker NYSE:JOBY.

The funds raised from the transaction will allow Joby Aviation to start commercial operations, including the needed certification of their aircraft and development of manufacturing facilities.
