HRH Prince Albert of Monaco Unveils the Jetson OneJetson OneJetson OneJetson OneJetson OneJetson One
If there were people who didn’t believe in Jetson One, the incredibly popular electric aircraft that took the world by storm even before its official launch, the most recent developments at the Swedish manufacturer are proving them wrong.
This summer, the Swedish eVTOL (electric vertical take-off and landing) that’s meant to become the private jet that anyone can fly in the future, was officially unveiled by HRH Prince Albert II of Monaco, at the Top Marques event in Monaco. The $92,000 electric aircraft was already sold out for this year long before.

It was obvious that production needed to be ramped up. Now, just a few months later, the innovative jet got to fly around the manufacturer’s new R&D and limited-production facility in Arezzo, Tuscany.

There’s an 800-meter (2,624 feet) airstrip near the facility, and the company has big plans for this airport – it will soon include a pilot school and a client experience center. The first lucky guests that will get to test the Jetson One at this location are expected as soon as next year, in April.

You can get a glimpse of the area in the video below, showing the “flying car” seamlessly taking off and landing on the dedicated airstrip.

And that’s not all. The Swedish startup announced that it’s coming to the U.S. next year, where it will also open operations, stating that its aircraft is “the perfect eVTOL for the U.S. market” and that it complies with the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) regulations.

The big goal is to enter mass production, and recent investments are taking Jetson closer than ever to this dream. Jetson says it’s getting a $10 million boost next month, thanks to some big names in the tech world, such as Luca Spada, Nik Robinson and Rikard Steiber.

The Jetson One became famous for the promise of being a zero-emission, single-seat aircraft that anyone can fly.
