With more than ten years of development and over 1,000 test flights completed, Joby’s piloted five-seat aircraft has demonstrated top speeds over 200 mph and more than 150 mph range on a single charge. “For more than 15 years, we’ve enlisted local Costa Rican talent to deliver world-class engineering software services to well-known customers across the globe. Our reputation in the aeronautical industry has grown as a result, and we look forward to making Costa Rica the number one location for delivering the software needs of aerospace companies,” commented Larry Allgood, CEO of Avionyx. Newly open positions at Avionyx span numerous clients and projects as Avionyx continues to help customers develop and certify systems for fixed-wing, rotary-wing, and eVTOL aircraft. Paula Bogantes, the vice minister of Foreign Trade, commented: “Costa Rica, as a world benchmark for specialized human talent, celebrates Avionyx’s decision to double its facilities and create more than 50 new jobs. This growth demonstrates how Costa Rica positions itself, more and more, in the productive value chains of an emerging sector like aerospace. highlighting design, manufacturing, production, marketing, and maintenance processes. At Comex, we urge Costa Ricans to apply these opportunities and acquire new knowledge – to be a part of this attractive and innovative industry.” Avionyx has 100% of its engineering department in Costa Rica.
