Your Sunday Morning Jet Noise


They don't get much smaller (or less practical) than a Cri-Cri jet.

One wonders how long before the pilot is totally deaf. That being said, I kinda want one!

Cray cray jet, did you say?

From a different video of the same aircraft:

Bottom of the white: 100 (K? MPH?)
Redline: 140

Airspeed reacts quickly and in significant values to various stick positions. I'll bet this thing would be very easy to get out of the envelope. So, yes to "impractical". You couldn't even put a set of golf clubs in it.

What I've read is 240kph and 25 minutes worth of gas. No wonder the pilot started the engines at the entrance to the runway. You can't fly anywhere and be at VFR minimums for fuel. Adding tip tanks gets one to 30 minutes of flying time at 110 Kts.

I was going by the actual airspeed indicator.
