Now you don’t need to worry if you are stuck in traffic and are getting late for work. Jetson One is here to take you to your desired location. The Jetson One, a flying vehicle, is an incredible scientific feat in the world of technology and is one of the unusual marvels in the field of automation. You would be amazed to know that it takes only five minutes of initial training in which you will quickly learn how to fly this eVTOL, and then you are fit to go. Moreover, the vehicle consists of eight electric motors and Tesla battery cells, which can keep you in the air for up to 20 minutes.

The flying vehicle has an incredible speed of a maximum of 63 miles per hour and can go to an altitude of 1500 feet AGL (above ground level). It should be noted that it can accommodate only one person on board who is the only one flying it, and he/she must carry the weight up to a maximum of 210 pounds. Besides this, the most interesting thing to note is that this eVTOL has a total weight of about 190 pounds, which makes it fall under the category of “ultralight” aircraft. This means that there is no need for any kind of pilot’s license for flying the vehicle.

Tomasz Patan, who is the co-founder of Jetson One, said that the prototype was completed in 2018, but after certain modifications, the flying vehicle was officially available for taking delivery orders in 2021. As per the CEO, around 85% of the clients are from the U.S. This means that people are interested in this ultralightweight vehicle, and they should be, as it provides them convenience in every way. However, as per U.S. laws, people are not authorized to fly Jetson One in the inner city and also at or near the vicinity of airports or in densely populated areas.

The customers are constantly increasing and getting beyond the expectations of the company. The company states that it is now out of units for the year 2022 as they were not ready for such an immense response from the people. Now the company is all lined up to take orders for the year 2023. Tomasz said, “We were amazed by the amount of interest. We hoped we were going to sell maybe 25 units during the year after the release of the first movie. But it turned out we sold those 25 within a week. So far, we’ve sold over 400 units.”

On that count, you might also remember the video of Tomasz Patan that accumulated views on the internet, when he commuted on this aircraft from his home to the office in just three minutes, and according to him, his daily traveling time has been considerably reduced by up to 88%.
