    I'm sure just a translation error, but I did get a chuckle out of the description of the above jet.

    The world's smallest disposable jet Flaris Lar 1 has just completed the final FJ33-5A engine tests. These are the plane’s last ground tests. Next month it will be transported to the airport, where it will take to the skies for the first time./

    Disposable?? Fly it once and get another one?

    neat looking jet, tho.

    Way past my skill level.

    Neat jet. Those suicide doors are a little freaky, though.

    Great clip, lovely plane, I wish them much success. I suspect there are a lot of relatively short, popular routes where this could make a lot of sense as an on-demand air taxi (UBER AIR?) to bypass the hassle of airline travel with much faster door-to-door speed.
