Science & Tech

We have been bringing you some amazing eVTOL concepts for some time now, but this might be the first ready-to-fly, DIY vehicle. The price tag is a bit stiff but if you are a flying enthusiast, this personal eVTOL is definitely a cheaper option than buying a plane, what's more, you don't even need a runway. So, without further ado, introducing Jetson One.

It may not be a swanky-looking futuristic flying car that science fiction movies have been selling you for decades now, but for a four-year-old company that's pushing to get people flying right from their garden or backyard, it's a major accomplishment. A single-person, DIY eVTOL with eight motors that can fly and land anywhere is what Sweden-based Jetson Aero promises.

Founded by Peter Ternström and Tomasz Patan in 2017, the company demonstrated its 'proof of concept' a year later and have been working on their customer-friendly commercial version ever since, the company claims on its website. The result of their efforts is a 190 pound (86 kg) eVTOL that is 9.3 x 7.8 x 3.3 feet (2840 x 2400 x 1030 mm) in dimensions during flight and can be neatly folded into a three-feet package for storage, when not in use.
