The founder of a space-age car company has made the "unprecedented" trip in one of his company's $83,600 vehicles.
The flying car is still in development and is not yet available for purchase, but the company is hoping to have it on the market within the next few years.
This is a major milestone for the company and for the flying car industry as a whole. It proves that this technology is viable and that it can be used for practical purposes.
The Jetson flying car is unique in that it uses different propulsion systems for takeoff and landing. For takeoff, it uses jet engines, and for landing, it uses electric motors.
From his Italian home, Tomasz Patan, co-founder of Jetson, flew the Jetson ONE vehicle 4.8 kilometers (2.98 miles) to a business building in Tuscany. The travel time was reduced by 88 percent, according to the company.
This was the first time a flying car has been used for commuting purposes. The company plans to use this technology to make other commutes more efficient as well.
The company is also working on making the Jetson flying car autonomous. This would allow people to travel without a pilot’s license.
The journey to the Santa Maria a Monte facility is a "momentous event" in the electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) industry, according to Jetson.
The plane is battery-powered and can fly for 20 minutes. It has a maximum speed of 102 kilometers per hour (63 miles per hour) and is powered by eight electric motors.
The race car's lightweight aluminum space frame design and Carbon-Kevlar composite body were strongly influential in the automobile's construction.
The plane can carry a pilot's weight of 100 kg (210 pounds) when running on a high discharge lithium-ion battery.
"On May 21, after months of extensive testing, the Jetson staff completed the first-ever eVTOL trip," said San Sunner, Jetson's head of communications.
"It was a beautiful sunny day and the flight went perfectly."
"The staff was on tenterhooks as the Jetson ONE arrived at the Santa Maria a Monte facility in Tuscany."
"Our ultimate objective is to democratize flight. We are absolutely certain that the 'eVTOL' will be the future for large transportation," said Patan, who is not only the co-founder of Jetson, but also its CTO. "The long-term goal for us is to make aviation more accessible."
Jetson's eVTOL is not a new concept. The company has been working on the technology for years and has already completed several test flights.
What makes this flight different is that it was the first time the company used its new autonomous flight control system, which is what will eventually be used by passengers.
"The goal of the autonomous flight control system is to be able to take off and land the aircraft without any human intervention," said Patan.
The system is still in development and will need to undergo further testing before it can be used by passengers.
Patan said that the company plans to begin offering flights to customers within the next two years.
The Jetson is a Formula One-style aircraft that's both tough and easy to fly. Most importantly, the Flight Stabilization System we created makes flight very simple.
"We can turn anyone into a pilot in less than five minutes," Peter Ternstrom, co-founder and president, added.
The makers of Jetson, a San Francisco-based startup, claim to have finished "proof of concept" work in the spring of 2018 and are now focused on developing a "consumer-friendly" version.
"The entire 2022 production has been sold out, but we are still taking orders for delivery in 2023," the firm added.
"We want everyone to become a pilot."
The Jetson is a marvel of engineering and design, and it's all electric so it doesn't produce any harmful emissions.
"It's very efficient, and we can fly for about an hour on a single charge," Ternstrom said.
The creators emphasize that they have taken extra precautions for the protection of their customers. The electric aerial vehicle is equipped with a spaceframe safety cage, which is based on race-car designs and includes hands-free hover and emergency functions.
A ballistic parachute is also included with the vehicle in case a passenger needs to exit the Jetson ONE quickly in an emergency.
Even with the loss of one motor, the Jetson ONE can fly safely and has a backup flight computer.
The most significant features of this drone are the Lidar sensors-controlled terrain tracking and obstacle avoidance, which guarantee that your flights are both safe and pleasant.
The Jetson ONE is also incredibly quiet, as the eight electric motors produce zero emissions.
This makes the drone perfect for flying in urban areas without disturbing the peace.
