I don't know if the fact that you only have to have 20 hours of flying lessons makes this thing better news or WORSE news. That being said, if I had a spare $194,000 lying around I know what would be in my stocking come Christmas 2011!
I do expect if it does get popular and/or profitable, the price will be under $100,000 in five years. That said, this is one of those if I hit Powerball things like the Wayne Manor that I live close that I would buy in a heartbeat.
It was days like yesterday that I was glad I had 25 bucks (plus 5 dollar tip) to give some guys to snow-blow my driveway and walkway. I would not have been able to go to work had not there been help in getting my car out of the foot-plus snowfall.
