    That's pretty slick, but lots of folks who learned to fly fifty years ago and listened to radio calls on the cabin speaker will tell you he should be wearing hearing protection.

    That's pretty creative and nicely flown. No doubt it is too heavy for Part 103 but other countries have more lenient ultralight regs.

    It’s a Greek design called the Archon SF1. It first appeared about 10 years ago. Definitely not 103 complain. There was desire to market it as a kit but that seemed to have never taken off. Too bad it’s kinda a clever design.

    Looks like it might actually be available as a kit...

    Well they’ve changed the paint scheme. Added a retractable bear and obviously played with a turbine. Unfortunately their website only features the one plane and offers no kit pricing. The one thing I didn’t like was the need for a step ladder to board the aircraft.

    We call that, "Authenticity".

    Well done, its appearance reminds me of a futuristic style.
