I assume it's an LSA?Yuck, I think it's fugly. I bet it won't be peanuts either- probably $130,000 or more.

The price is in one of the links on the page - $109,500 for the first $111,500 after - of course subject to optional equipment and inflationary adjustments.Remember this is a Light Sport Aircraft for VFR only.

Way too overpriced, with a whopping 100 horses and a 118kt top speed, I can't imagine what makes this aircraft so expensive, hopefully it's not those boring new avionics . Check out the homebuilts at Vans, you get so much more airplane for so much less.Jeff

Think in market terms - ready to fly, certified, easier to finance, less to insure, easy transition, no medical required (subject to the LSA regs.)Then think resale - all the same reasons.By the way, I feed two Continentals; one at 85 horses and the other at 300. Guess which one sees more air time. $4.50 -$5.00 avgas at 15-16 gph vs 4-5 gph of autogas has its value too.And if the feds have their way with user fees and other taxes, light and simple offers more value still.Leon
