Jetson AB, July 02, 2022 - On May 21, after months of rigorous testing, the Jetson team completed the “first-ever eVTOL commute”.
Jetson co-founder Tomasz Patan piloted the Jetson ONE as the Jetson team waited in anticipation for the aircraft’s arrival at the Santa Maria a Monte facility in Tuscany.
The eVTOL commute reduced the commute time by an impressive 88%.
Jetson described the flight as a breakthrough for the emerging eVTOL sector and the rapidly growing eVTOL company.
The Jetson ONE was unveiled by HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco on Thursday June 9, 2022. The ceremony marked the first time Jetson ONE was seen in public since it entered the market in late October 2021.
“Our long-term goal is to democratize flight. We firmly believe the ‘eVTOL’ is the future for mass transportation. We are committed to making this a reality,” said Tomasz Patan, co-founder and CTO.
The Jetson ONE is constructed of a race car inspired lightweight aluminum space frame and Carbon-Kevlar composite body.
It is powered by eight electric motors, has a flight time of 20 minutes, reaching a top speed of 63 miles per hour (102 kilometers per hour). It runs on a high discharge lithium-ion battery and can carry a pilot’s weight of 210 pounds (100kg).
“The Jetson is built like a formula one car for the sky and incredibly fun to fly. Most importantly, the flight stabilization system we developed makes flight super easy. We can make anyone a pilot in less than five minutes,” said Peter Ternstrom, co-founder and president.
