Pelton. “We have had more voice-of-the-customer input into the design of this aircraft than anything we’ve done in the past, and that has led to many design elements that make it easier for pilots and passengers.” The price is an element attractive to many would-be pilots and owners, as well. At an anticipated price of $109,500, first flight of the prototype Model 162 is set for the first half of 2008, and deliveries are expected to begin in 2009″ Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
