Jetson, the Swedish electric vertical takeoff and landing aircraft (eVTOL) company, has released a video of founder Tomasz Patan, inventor of the company's ONE flying car, piloting the craft in a commute to his office.
The company did not share details on the distance or total duration of the commute, but the film offers snazzy footage of the one-person conveyance navigating between utility lines and over treetops before touching down at the company's HQ. The company plans to deliver its first flying cars to customers next year.
The Jetson will not require piloting certification. The craft can reach maximum speeds of 63 mph, but limits users to 20-minute flights before the batteries need recharging. Its payload capacity of 210 lbs. Onboard LiDAR sensors will ensure obstacle avoidance, and a triple-redundant flight computer is intended to enhance the ease and safety of operation.
