Conventional aviation is gradually making room for greener alternatives, including the futuristic eVTOLs (electric vertical takeoff and landing) that come in many shapes and sizes. From now on, we'll see more and more traditional events in the industry showcasing the most exciting electric aircraft, such as the ultra-popular Jetson One.
Folks who attended this year's edition of the "Volo in Rosa" in Milan, Italy, an event organized by the Volandia Aviation Museum and Park, were lucky enough to take a closer look at the ultra-coveted personal eVTOL known as Jetson One. The electric personal aircraft was on display during an event that is particularly geared toward women in aviation.

One of the best things about this event is that it offers a training grant to women aspiring to become pilots, either in the form of a CPL (Commercial Pilot License) or an ATPL (Airline Transport Pilot License). Interestingly enough, the eVTOL on display this year was specifically designed to open up the sky to literally everybody, meaning that it doesn't require any kind of formal pilot license.

While most eVTOLs are designed to operate as air taxis for public transport, some aim to turn regular folks into pilots of their own green flying machines. The Jetson One is one of the top options in the public's eye, and the massive pre-order backlog seems to confirm it. Like in the years before, the futuristic aircraft are already sold out for 2024 and 2025 despite the steep pricing currently at $128,000.

This recent event also continues to strengthen Jetson's ties with Italy. Last year, three units of the single-seat eVTOL were displayed at the ZeroEmission Mediterranean event held in Rome. At the time, Jetson had secured official approval from the Italian authorities to fly its aircraft in unmanned mode through remote control and to certify it as an ultralight eVTOL.

The Aero Club d'Italia (AeCI) issued the registration certification for Jetson One as an ultralight eVTOL – licensed pilots were legally allowed to fly the pre-production aircraft in Italy's uncontrolled air space. This is important for enabling the eVTOL developer to carry out test flights, including uncrewed ones, in this area.

Italy recently became Jetson's main location after moving from Poland. The company's R&D and production facility is officially operating in Arezzo, Tuscany. The same location also houses a Jetson pilot school and a customer experience center.

Still, Jetson One aims to fly way beyond European borders. In 2023, the personal eVTOL nailed its first flight in the US, carried out by Jetson founder Tomasz Patan. The company confirmed that it's looking to open its first American headquarters soon. In the meantime, celebrity brand ambassadors like are set to become some of the first trained Jetson pilots.
