(ORDO NEWS) — The creators call their product eVTOL (electric vertical take off and landing) – an electric vehicle with vertical takeoff and landing.
Last October, Swedish startup Jetson began accepting orders for its Jetson ONE compact aircraft. The creators call their product eVTOL (electric vertical take off and landing) – an electric vehicle with vertical takeoff and landing. Almost immediately after the start of sales, all devices from the first production cycle were booked.
In early February, Jetson announced the possibility of ordering eVTOL again, with deliveries of this batch starting as early as 2023. The list of reserved copies can be viewed on the official website of the startup. Most of the clients, not surprisingly, are from Canada and the USA.
In support of the new wave of orders, Jetson ONE posted a video of flying over water on their YouTube channel.
“We have already flown over the desert, through the forest. This time we decided to fly the Jetson ONE over the water – the feeling is just incredible and magical!”
The Jetson ONE aircraft is equipped with a variety of safety systems designed to help even inexperienced pilots fly it. Jetson ONE can avoid obstacles on its own with the help of an on-board computer and a set of LiDAR sensors.
To save the life and health of the pilot, the device is equipped with a seat with a seat belt (let’s recognize the Swedes!), a ballistic parachute, special body deformation zones and emergency altitude hold systems if the pilot releases the controls from his hands.
eVTOL from Jetson can be ordered for $92,000, which is approximately 7 million rubles at the current exchange rate.
The Jetson ONE is a single-seat vehicle and can support a pilot weighing no more than 95 kilograms. At the same time, the maximum speed to which the Jetson ONE can accelerate is 102 km / h, but after every 20 minutes of flight, the battery of the device will have to be charged for at least 1 hour from a regular network with a voltage of 220 volts.
At maximum speed on a single charge, it will be possible to cover only about 30 km, and this value may vary from the weight of the pilot, weather conditions and other factors.
