Hmmm....transonic range speeds and ejection seats? I'm sure there won't be any certification problems there. Wink

Despite its looks, Saker says no military training will be required to fly the S-1, which has a stall speed of 90 knots. The aircraft’s cockpit, systems and aerodynamics have all been designed so it can be handled by any properly trained pilot. And if the pilot isn’t up to the task, Saker will also offer the option of ejection seats.

We've been informed that Saker Aircraft is aiming for a price in the US$5 to $7 million range, depending on custom features, with hopes that if the certification process runs smoothly deliveries will begin in 2019. The company points out that since the S-1 is still at the concept stage, *there will likely be some changes and improvements to ensure the aircraft meets regulatory requirements


*...Yep, that'd be my guess, too. Laughing

Will there be options for external tanks and inflight refueling?
