Many big players in the emerging electric aircraft market are trying to transform the mass transportation industry, but one Swedish company has set a simpler goal. It wants everyone to have their own electric flying device to build and fly around. A video was posted on YouTube last week showing the plane ready to fly. It’s called the Jetson One and it’s a single seat vehicle. The compact size of the Jetson One allows it to take off and land anywhere, such as in the home garden or even on a terrace. It weighs 190 pounds (86 kg) and can accommodate a person with a maximum weight of 210 pounds (95 kg).

Jetson One costs $ 92,000 (approximately Rs. 68 lakh) and is shipped partially assembled to the buyer. This means that the rest of the work has to be done at home. The kit includes detailed instructions on how to complete the assembly. The aircraft can fly for 20 minutes on a single charge at a top flight speed of 102 km / h. The speed is limited by software for security reasons. It is powered by a lithium-ion battery with a high discharge. The aircraft will carry a ballistic parachute with a quick deployment time for emergencies.

The company says production will begin in the summer of 2022 and the first shipment is expected later this year. But all 12 production spaces for next year are occupied and applicants will have to wait until 2023. To reserve a site, a potential buyer must deposit $ 22,000 (about 16 lakh). The video released last week showed that the ultra-light vehicle will have four rotors on the edges and an all-aluminum frame to keep weight down.

Jetson was founded in 2017 by Peter Ternstrom and Tomasz Patan and work on the prototype began shortly afterwards. The first successful flight of the prototype was carried out in January 2018. After that, the company began work on its second generation prototype, the Jetson One.
