Saker S-1: Private Jet Targets Mach 0.99

Saker S-1 Concept Art
Saker Aircraft is pitching this fighter-inspired personal jet that is designed to just kiss the speed of sound with a top speed of Mach 0.99. It's a tandem two-seater. The value proposition is the time saved getting from point A to point B, though I think the Top Gun looks, the fighter jet sex appeal is the real attraction.

Tip of the hat to Gizmag, which is where I found the Saker. They have a gallery of Saker pics up.

Flying Magazine online has a post up about the Saker. According to writer Stephen Pope, Saker is already taking pre-orders for the S-1 for delivery in 2019. The price tag ranges from $5M to $7M, depending on features.... which includes an option for ejection seats.
