Soon everyone will be a pilot.

Well, that’s the promise made by the crew behind this $92,000 octocopter that anyone can fly – and it’ll hit 102km/h!

This is the Jetson ONE, it has eight powerful electric motors that blast it off the ground.

A test-run video shot over stunning Tuscany shows the octocopter in action and it looks kind of awesome.

It has no problem navigating around the tree tops and looks incredibly easy to fly.

And most importantly, take-off and landing seems to be almost flawless.

Even if you do run into trouble, the aircraft can fly safely with the loss of one motor and if you really do need to abandon ship (aircraft), it’s fitted with a ballistic parachute with “rapid deployment time”.

Jetson stats

  • It has a top speed of 102km/h (or 63mph) and can carry a 95kg (210lbs) pilot
  • The Jetson weighs 86kg (190lbs), and measures 2.48m (8ft 1.64in) by 1.5m (4ft 11.06in) by 1.03m (3ft 4.55in)
  • You can guide it with a three-axis joystick and a throttle lever, but it only has a flight time of 20 minutes
  • The pilot sits in an aluminum and carbon fiber frame that looks like a racecar cockpit

To get your hands on one, you’ll need a down payment of $22,000 and then a final payment of $70,000.

How can you get a Jetson ONE octocopter?

Right now the entire 2022 production (12 chassis) is sold out, according to the Jetson Aero website.

But they are taking orders for deliveries next year, just three of almost 150 appear to still be available.

“If you receive your Jetson at lunch, you will be flying before dinner,” Jetson says.
