You Can Order the Jetson One Personal Flying Vehicle Right Now

Speaker 1: Meet the jets in one, a personal flying vehicle. That's not meant to solve the climate crisis or revolutionized transportation. All it's meant to do is show you a good time. Speaker 2: It's basically, uh, jet ski for the air Speaker 1: That's Jetson, founder, Peter turnt STRM he and his co-founder Tamas Paton have been working on the Jetson one since 2017, but have been flying [00:00:30] under the radar. So to speak for most of that time, back in 2019, they released their first video of a proof of concept vehicle. Since then, we've seen a handful of flight testing, videos and upgrades to the vehicles. Then late last year, Jetson made its official launch. With this video. It shows Paton [00:01:00] flying the first jets in one production model. And if their goal is to make flying this thing, look fun, mission accomplished. In fact, does this video remind you of anything? [00:01:30] How about now? Speaker 1: So let's talk about what the Jetson one is and what it isn't. This is a recreational ultralight, E V T O L, which most of you probably know by now stands for electric vertical takeoff and landing. It weighs 190 pounds. The frame is all aluminum and it's powered by eight electric motors. The Tesla battery cells give it a flight time of 20 minutes. That means this isn't [00:02:00] built for long commutes to the office, or to get you to your next vacation. This is for recreation and let's face it, making your friends a little jealous, but what the founders are banking on to peak interest is the flight controls and their simple design. We are Speaker 2: Confident now that we can put anyone in the jet song and that we can teach them to fly in five minutes and they will have fun. It is so incredibly easy Speaker 1: Fly. You heard that right. Five minutes. Jetson says no flight experience is required to master flying [00:02:30] this thing. And no pilot's license is needed. Unlike helicopters and planes, there, isn't a complicated array of buttons and switches. And the pilot's left hand is the thrust lever, which doesn't connect directly to the motors. It talks to the proprietary triple redundant in flight, computer and controls the altitude and the right hand is a three access joystick. So what about safety? The computer limits the top speed to 63 miles per hour. Jetson says it can still fly if any single motor goes out. And there's also a ballistic [00:03:00] parachute that only deploys higher altitudes. And that cage is intended to protect the pilot in the event of a low altitude crash. There's also LIDAR sensors for terrain tracking and avoiding obstacles. So what's it actually like to fly? I asked Peter about his first time flying the jets in one, it was a little Speaker 2: Bit louder than I expected, but it has a nice futuristic star wars kind of sound. And most importantly, it gives you this profound [00:03:30] experience of, of joy. You know, it's fun. It it's so much fun. I mean, everyone has dreamt about flying. Speaker 1: So the big question of course is how much to use Peter's words does a jet ski for the sky cost. The Jetson one is priced at $92,000 us and according the company orders are rolling in Terro told me they've taken 163 orders for delivering in 2023. They plan [00:04:00] to spend the first half of this year on crash testing before ramping up production to hit those orders. The first Jetson owners will attend a training session in Tuscany, Italy, and the company plans to eventually open up a training center in the us. Now that immediately got me thinking about where I would want to fly one of these. If I got the chance, the grand key and you'll somebody national park were the first spots that came to mind from me. But what about you? Let me know in the comments as always, thank you so much for watching. If you enjoyed this video, don't forget [00:04:30] to give it a thumbs up and subscribe for more videos like it. I'm Andy Altman and I'll see you in the future.
