    Hello:
    My Question is;

    How much & does it come, fully assembled. & what is range, and does it take regular JP fuel.
    It look like a Aircraft you can fly over 300 knts. That would be perfect for short trips, to visit family or go out, to a place to enjoy.
    Please confrim the : Speed; Alitude: Range; and it’s take off weight. Plus personel inside.
    Thanks Blair.
