Thank you Volvo! We are incredibly happy to receive this state of the art crash test dummy gifted to us by Swedish company Volvo. We have named it Nils in honor of Nils Bohlin.

Nils Bohlin was Volvo’s first Chief Safety Engineer and the inventor of the three-point safety belt in 1959. Nils and Volvo later offered this breakthrough in innovation freely across the motor industry.

Until the late 1950s, automobiles had only a two-point safety harness that offered limited protection. Two-point safety belts covered only the lower abdomen, making the belt little to no use in high-speed collisions. Sadly, a relative of the then Volvo CEO Gunnar Engelau met a fatal end in such a way.

The fatality led to Volvo hiring their first-ever Chief Safety Officer. Nils Bohlin. Nils had previously worked on fighter planes. He designed a new seat belt using his existing knowledge of four-point harnesses used for airplanes.

He set to work designing a safety belt that could provide a driver and passengers substantially more protection against high-impact collisions.

The final product was the three-point safety belt. Volvo and Bohlin decided the belt could help save lives and increase safety for all automotive drivers. They gave the design to the automotive industry freely. The rest is, as they say, history.

We will now continue our test flights with Nils at the helm, collecting all the data. Helping Jetson to create an EVTOL with robust safety features.

The Jetson ONE flies effortlessly over our 800-meter airstrip at our new R&D and limited production facility in Arezzo, Tuscany. The airport will also be home to a client experience centre and pilot school. We will welcome guests with an assigned chassis number to test-fly the Jetson ONE in April 2023.

We are proud to introduce our new R & D and limited production facility in Arezzo, Tuscany. In April 2022, the stars aligned for Jetson. We found our new home in a private airfield south of Florence, with an 800-meter airstrip and an adjacent industrial facility from the late 19th century.

It was a delight to collaborate with the Insta360 team in Tuscany earlier this year. As part of their Think Bold series, the Insta 360 crew sat down with the Jetson founders to learn more about our journey and inspiration. Later, it was all action. We created the most incredible chase scene between the Jetson ONE and a Ferrari 458.
