There are plans for cars that both fly and work on the road and for flying taxis that will aim to form the basis of future travel.

Jetson is one of these companies.

The company aims "to make the skies available for everyone with our safe personal electric aerial vehicle," according to its website. 

The company's first flying car, Jetson One, is already on sale.

Jetson One has a maximum speed of 63mph thanks to its eight electric motors which generate 102 horsepower. The car can run continually for 20 minutes.

The car can take off vertically and remain airborne, although the company doesn't specify the maximum altitude that the vehicle can reach.

The car can be controlled with a three-axis joystick, and there's a throttle lever to adjust power.

No expense has been spared when it comes to safety. The chassis of the vehicle was inspired by the same technology used in race cars. The company also said that it will be able to fly even if it loses an engine. There is an emergency function that takes control of the aircraft, a LiDAR sensor capable of tracking the terrain to avoid obstacles, and a parachute with a rapid deployment system.

It's already sold out for 2022 but Jetson has more deliveries scheduled for 2023. If you're interested, you can reserve one online with a deposit of $22,000.

That isn't all. It's shipped as a partially assembled kit and so requires you to complete it at home.
