  1. Seems good, 75 cents per nautical mile is good but I would be fine on the smart jet. I would be sick after 2 minutes if I was climbing in the Solo. $1,250,000 is a lot of money. I would get better out of a $900,000 smart jet. 2800 feet per minute is good enough for me. I don’t need 8000 ft/minute climb rates. If you are an acrobatic pilot, fine. But Climbing to 25000 feet in 500 seconds will be perfectly fine. If you want something that will do the job, don’t buy the Solo jet. Buy either the Smart Jet which provides decent speed and brilliant fuel economy, or the Cruiser Jet which provides decent fuel economy and slightly better speed. If you have a lot of money, go and cash on the $3,000,000 Embrear Phenom 100. Brilliant cruise speed of 390 knots and fuel economy nearly as good as the smart jet but 100 knots faster at the same time. Not bad for $3 million, is it. Check it out if you can afford the plane, which I think you might not. Still, just check it out.
