A Drone You Can Fly Around in is Now Available to Buy From Jetson Aero

If you ever watched a drone flying around and wondered, why can’t you make it bigger so a person can fly in one? This is an excellent question and good news, somebody did!

A Sweden company called Jetson Aero decided to make a drone that you can literally fly around in. It is the actually manifestation of a flying automobile.

For older generations who grew up watching the hit cartoon show “The Jetsons“, the idea of a flying automobile for your average consumer seemed like a futuristic pipedream. It seems Jetson Aero is bringing us closer to such a future!

The Swedish company is already manufacturing this product for customers, personal electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft that can drone around at 63 mph and can reach heights as high as 1,500 meters (4,921 feet) in the sky!

Of course, we have had helicopters for awhile. And to pilot a helicopter you need a lot of training for safety and to abide by government regulations. The Jetson flying automobile is called a “octocopter” which is just a fancy way to say a drone that carries human passengers

When small remote control drones first hit the market for buyers there was little to no regulations whatsoever, and slowly over time new laws had to be put into place (such as limits of certain airspaces that were allowed to fly). There is no doubt many new laws will be put into place if and when this product becomes mainstream.

As of now there is a very limited production of these octocopters. At the time of writing this (November 2021), you have to wait until the end of 2023 for them to start manufacturing your personal flying drone automobile.
