Jetson CEO takes his eVTOL on a commute to work


Walk out into your back yard, jump into a next-generation electric VTOL flying machine, lift off and soar your way to the office helipad: that’s the dream of personal eVTOL ownership, and Jetson co-founder Tomasz Patan has lived it, in a new video.

Sweden’s Jetson One aircraft is pure simplicity: a coaxial octacopter with a seat and a roll cage and enough batteries for 20 minutes of agile, buzzy flight at speeds up to 63 mph (102 km/h). It’s got some limited autonomy capability; if you let go of the sticks it’ll hover in place, or find somewhere to land if the battery’s low, but really it’s designed to be flown for fun, with a joystick and a throttle.
