‘First Ever’ Commute in The Jetson Flying Car – CEO Says it Can Make You a Pilot in 5 Minutes


A company owner has completed the ‘first ever’ commute in an $83,000 (£68,000) space-age flying car.

Tomasz Patan is co-founder of the Swedish firm Jetson, and he just piloted the Jetson ONE vehicle from his Italian home to a company building in Tuscany.

Jetson say the trip to the Santa Maria a Monte facility is a “momentous occasion for the electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) sector.”

The aircraft is powered by eight electric motors, has a flight time of 20 minutes, and can reach a top speed of 63mph (102kph).

The futuristic vehicle is constructed from a race car-inspired lightweight aluminium space frame and a Carbon-Kevlar composite body.

Running on a high discharge lithium-ion battery, the vehicle can carry a pilot’s weight of 210 pounds (100kg).

“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,” Tomasz Patan, co-founder and CTO, said.


“The Jetson is built like a Formula One car for the sky and incredibly fun to fly. Most importantly, the Flight Stabilisation 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.

Jetson say their prototype “proof of concept” was finished in the spring of 2018, and they have since been working on a “consumer-friendly” version.

They add, “The entire 2022 production is sold out, but we are accepting orders for 2023 delivery.”
