I have about 200 hours in one, so naturally I'd like to see it! Mach .64 at a bit over 400 lbs/hour. Amazing. Unfortunately the original company itself had troubles and the aircraft has some avionics gremlins. They should have gone with Garmin or Avidyne instead of trying to invent their own. But hey, when the CEO is ex Microsoft, I guess you have some hubris in the tech category.
