Swedish startup Jetson has released extensive new in-flight footage of its Jetson ONE, a personal eVTOL it plans to make available as a kit for home-building starting next year. Built around a rigid aluminium spaceframe with eight electric motors, the aircraft will have an endurance of around 20 minutes and a software-limited top speed of 102 kilometers per hour (63 miles per hour). The Jetson website advertises a starting price of US$92,000. “Our mission is to make flight available to everyone,” said Jetson president Peter Ternström, who co-founded the company with Tomasz Patan in 2017. Patan, who is the company’s chief technical officer, described the Jetson ONE as “a dream to fly.” This footage was recorded in Poland.
