It was really great to have the opportunity to meet everyone at UP.Summit and to have them see Jetson ONE in real life. Everyone really loved the Jetson ONE!

It was a beautiful evening October 5th at the Perot family's Circle T Ranch in Westlake TX on when Tomasz Patan made the first Jetson ONE flight in the USA. Epic flight! Please check out the Jetson YouTube Channel watch the first flight in HD, here!

"Knowing this will be our first ever flight in the US I could not sleep the night before. The Team was very excited to learn we are going to make this historic flight using our original concept vehicle. It felt incredible to climb inside the cockpit and perform a demo flight of our nimble "flying formula 1 car" in front of guests, investors and entrepreneurs at the UP.Summit. This important milestone shows that we are determined to be present in the USA and build great relationships there.", said Tomasz Patan.

Tomasz and the Jetson team were all very pleased with the first official Jetson ONE flight in the USA. A special thank you to Timothy and the UP.Summit film crew.

Some of the most impactful investors, entrepreneurs, and leaders in policy, defense, transportation and mobility companies gather at the UP Summit each year with the goal of moving people and goods in cleaner, faster, safer, and at lower-cost ways - on the ground, in the air, on the sea, and in space. UP.Summit is jointly organized by UP.Partners, Tom and Steuart Walton, and Ross Perot Jr.

The Jetson team got to meet some incredible people like the future astronauts on the #PolarisDawn mission riding SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket to a record breaking highest Earth orbit ever flown, led by Jared Isaacman. This incredible crew will attempt the first-ever commercial spacewalk as well! 

Jetson team feels honored to meet you Scott "Kidd" Poteet, Sarah Gillis, and Anna Menon! 

The first flight in the USA was an important milestone for Jetson, and we like to thank you all for your support! Let’s make the skies available to everyone. We are just getting started!
