    A CallAir 90 is a rare plane which is interesting that he would advertise on CL. That's like finding a Luscombe Phantom for sale on CL. Usually something that unique has a line a buyers and a sale happens with no ads, unless something is out of whack

    It's also on Barnstormers. Granted it's a nice looking restoration, and the Interstate was always one of the nicest of that era, but $90K is absurd for a putt-putt of that type.

    I agree. There is a better alternative....how about a commonwealth? https://charlotte.craigslist.org/avo/d/1946-commonwealth/6661906315.html Nice bird. Just north of Charlotte, NC. Still $30K. i'm still looking at a Chief...cheap, and faster than a Champ. (Joke on the Aeronca list) Derswede

Saw this in Raleigh, NC.... https://raleigh.craigslist.org/avo/d/14-ejection-seat/6683724520.html Who was wanting to build a pulse jet? This should be a required option... Also wonder if UPS would ship it. Don't these have rocket motors in the back? Derswede

    Would the FAA give a weight allowance for that?

    Probably weighs more than an ultralight! Hang a rogallo wing over it and make the worlds fastest ultralight (at least for a couple of hundred meters....!)

    The USAF X-25A fitted an autogyro around an ejection seat. The idea was that a downed pilot could fly someplace preferable to his aircraft's crash site, which was good -- in theory. McCulloch 4318G engine (90hp), 80 MPH top speed, 90 mile range. Never fielded, which probably saved some lives.

    Oh, great! Now the pilot can be shot down twice in one day!

    And why would he want to go to his crash site? Wouldn't the insurgents with the stinger missiles be pouring all over it?

    No, perhaps I expressed it poorly. The idea is that he could fly away from the crash site, rather than winding up near it.

    In theory, if you can't get all the back to your own side of the lines, getting closer to the good guys (or to a place where you can be picked up, or at least away from the shoot-down location) is a good thing. But priority one with egress systems has to be reliability: getting the pilot on the ground safely throughout the ejection envelope, over a wide variety on environmental conditions. This experimental system was never going to be as reliable as a simple round 'chute and a well-executed landing.

    Wow, that Fly Baby looks like pretty worklike construction!

    Except, of course, for the photo they've put the wings on wrong way around. That'd fix easy.
