This flying vehicle could be the future of air travel known as the Jetson one .

The vehicle's eight electric motors give it a top speed of 63 MPH and its Tesla battery cells allow for a flight time of up to 20 minutes .

The vehicle can reach an altitude of 1500 ft above ground level and support a pilot weighing up to £210 .

It's known as an E V tall or electric vertical takeoff and landing aircraft .

The same design already used for many flying car concepts , but with a weight of only £190 it's been categorized as ultra light , meaning you don't need a driver's or pilot's license to operate .

It .

Swedish company , Jetson designed the vehicle , the Jetson one is based on actually based on the US regulations .

It's a FAA part one and three .

I mean , there are some countries that may be flying .

Jetson one is still not regulated .

85% of our clients are based in the US .

It took us a few prototypes .

The first proof of concept we finished back in 2018 , there was a very successful flight just after one month .

Surprisingly , it took us only a few weeks to finish .

The first prototype .

The official Jetson one was revealed in 2021 .

It's extremely easy to operate it because we have a flight computer on board and the whole steering is a fly by wire system .

That means you have just two joysticks .

You can learn how to fly it in literally five minutes .

Its flight stabilization system includes lidar sensors that help it steer clear of power lines , trees and buildings .

And if you cut the throttle to zero , the vehicle can land itself .

In June company , co founder , Thomas Patan released a video of himself using the aircraft for a quick three minute commute from his home to his office .

According to Patan , the flight decreased his commute time normally by car and on public roads by 88% .

Still current laws don't allow people to use it for inner city commutes under us rules .

This type of aircraft is not permitted to fly near airports or densely populated areas .

There is a mandatory uh training for our customers .

It's a two day training .

It's a very short training .

And uh during that training , you , you will learn how to operate uh the one and also you will learn about the regulations um and how to fly it in compliance to to those regulations .

However , none of this has slowed buyers from getting in line for the aircraft .

Jetson's entire production of the one for 2022 is already sold out .

The company is now only accepting orders for production in 2023 we were amazed by the amount of interest we hoped we're 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 the week .

So far , we sold over 400 units .

Eventually , we do plan to manufacture a few 1000 that will be delivered within three years time .

We will also with time increase the battery capacity to allow for a longer flight time .

Right now , we have started working on the next generation of Jetson flying vehicle in general .

The mission for the company , our vision , we would like to solve the transportation problem and move the ground based transportation up to the air making cities a better place to live .
