The Future of Advanced Air Mobility

Jetson is developing eVTOL aircraft called the Jetson One. The Swedish company was founded in November 2017 by high-performance car entrepreneur Peter Ternstrom and drone specialist Tomasz Patan. Its aim had been to start production of the single-seat model before the end of 2022, but this was pushed back into 2023 after the start-up decided to further refine the design. These include features such as weatherproofing the cockpit controls and developing a ballistic safety parachute. Another key change is that the company now intends to deliver the aircraft fully assembled, rather than as a kit-build package for owners to put together.

The aircraft is being produced under FAA Part 103 rules and, as such, owners do not need a pilot's license to fly it. In September 2022, the company reported that it has collected 500 down payments of $22,000 for the $92,000 vehicle.

Our objective assessment of this program’s probable success.

FutureFlight assesses the probability of success for a new aircraft program by considering the following criteria:

  • Total investment funds available in proportion to the anticipated cost of getting an aircraft certified and in service
  • A company’s in-house capability (in terms of numbers of engineers, technical staff, and customer support teams)
  • The past experience of the company and its senior leadership in developing aircraft
  • The caliber and past experience of key program partners
  • Whether key aircraft systems have been selected and are available for use
  • Whether the preliminary design review has been completed
  • Whether the design for the full-scale prototype has been completed
  • Whether the type certification process has been formally initiated with an appropriate regulator
  • Whether the company has achieved a first flight with a full-scale prototype
  • The number of hours logged in a flight test program
  • Whether type certification has been achieved
  • The number of orders and commitment received for the aircraft
  • Whether the company has adequate facilities to begin series production of the aircraft
Our Methodology

Jetson Aero has been quietly developing the Jetson One single-seat eVTOL vehicle to market under Part 103 sports flying regulations that do not require operators to be trained pilots. In September 2022, the Sweden-based company has collected as many as 500 $22,000 deposits for the $92,000 vehicle. At the time, it reported that it has raised $8 million towards its $10 million seed funding target for launching production in 2023.

The Jetson One is a single-seat, kit-built eVTOL vehicle with eight sets of electric motors and rotors. It has an open chassis design and has been developed under Part 103 sports flying rules that do not require operators to have a pilot's license. It can land in a 10 feet by 10 feet space, and with the rotors folded is just under 3 feet in width.
