Appearances Mario Kart Wii

The Jetsetter (known as the Aero Glider in the British English version) is a large kart that appears in Mario Kart Wii. The Jetsetter resembles a Le Mans Prototype racecar and the body has a similar design to the Streamliner, but has more of a rectangular shape as opposed to the Streamliner's wedge-shaped body. It features a three-pointed nose with the middle point shorter and thicker. It has blue wheels, a rear fin and a single dual exhaust port in the back. The emblem is located on the hood and sides of the kart.

The Jetsetter is unlocked by receiving a one star rank or better in all 150cc Retro Cups or by playing 4,500 races, and it is a jet-type vehicle. It is the fastest vehicle in the game. It also has decent weight, but is actually the lightest large kart in the game. All of the Jetsetter's other stats are severely low; it is notable in that it has the worst handling, off-road, and Mini-Turbo stats in the game, making it have the lowest stat total of all vehicles. It also has the third worst drift among the karts, behind the Super Blooper and Offroader. Visibly, it has the same acceleration as the Wild Wing, though internal data shows the two having mixed stats in acceleration. Additionally, Funky Kong's Jetsetter has the best speed stat in the game. If the Jetsetter is driven by Bowser, Donkey Kong, Funky Kong, or Rosalina, it will not be capable of drifting on any type of off-road terrain. If Waluigi uses it, its acceleration stat will become that of the Sprinter and Honeycoupe, and its drift stat will become that of the Magikruiser and Daytripper.

The Sprinter (its rough equivalent in middle-sized vehicles) is also very similar to the Jetsetter in shape, though the Sprinter is more clearly modeled on Formula 1 racecars.

The Jetsetter's bike counterpart is the Spear. This is the only vehicle to have a stat higher than sixty-seven (its speed is sixty-nine). Its medium counterpart is the Sprinter, and its small counterpart is the Blue Falcon.
