eVTOL company, Jetson, has chosen Parazero to develop parachute safety systems for its Jetson One personal aircraft, reports a press release. The Jetson ONE is constructed of a race car inspired lightweight aluminium space frame and Carbon-Kevlar composite body. It is powered by eight electric motors, has a flight time of 20 minutes; reaching a top speed of 63 mph; and runs on a high discharge lithium-ion battery, while carrying a pilot’s weight of up to 95kg.
Stéphan D’haene the company’s new CEO, confirms its commitment to safety. “The unique low altitude airframe recovery system of ParaZero is complementing the redundant propulsion and fail-safe systems standard on the Jetson ONE,” he explained, “We are focusing on a complete and integrated solution, and ParaZero has the right setup and engineering team to support Jetson’s safety priorities.”
Tomasz Patan, Jetson’s co-Founder and Head of Innovation, remarked, “Introducing and incorporating the best possible safety technology is high on Jetson’s development priorities and was one of the reasons for selecting ParaZero and their patented parachute deployment technology.“
Boaz Shetzer, CEO of ParaZero added, “Jetson have managed to generate huge traction for their Jetson ONE and can open vast flight opportunities for many people around the world. ParaZero’s patented parachute launching technology will enable the safest possible flight envelope for Jetson ONE users, meeting the challenges for low altitude recovery.”
