“I was at a Cirrus event and someone tried to summon their Tesla past a $3,500,000 Vision jet. Ooph…” replied the poster.

Cirrus Aircraft is a personal aviation company, which means it sells private jets to those who can afford to pay millions of dollars.

So one driver decided to boldly turn on his Tesla Model Y’s “Smart Summon” function on the tarmac.

Tesla says that the "Smart Summon” is a mobile app feature that allows you to move your Tesla to your location using your phone’s GPS as the target destination, or to a location of your choice by “maneuvering around and stopping for objects as necessary.”

Well, it is safe to assume that we are not sure that the last part anymore after watching the clip.

Now, amused commenters on the Reddit thread are busy discussing whether insurance will cover anything at all, since the accident occurred between an aircraft and a vehicle.

This incident is another addition to the list of weird accidents involving Tesla cars.

A few weeks back, one man totally damaged his Tesla Model S after driving it nearly 50 feet into the air as part of a stunt. Also in March, someone drove their Tesla through a shop’s window in Scarborough, Ontario.

Last year a person was seen sleeping like a baby in the driver’s seat of their Tesla as it drove through Metro Vancouver. The car apparently has a feature that stops it in its tracks if the driver loses consciousness.
