Oofta. That’s a cute little jet!

The roar of a mini jet could be heard over Lake Superior today, as Cirrus Design launched “The Jet.”  Watching this little bird fly overhead I couldn’t help think what George Jetson might thinkabout this little mode of transport.   Oofta. Don’t you know…George, his lovely wife Jane, daughter Judy and their boy Elroy could fit in this little seven seater dream…with room left over for Astro and Rosie!  Heck there would even be room left over for Mr. Spacely!  For the right price….your family might one day soon own it’s own little jet.

Here is a quote from today’s news media event at the Duluth International Airport.

“We don’t have to change this image of pilot to superman,” said Alan Klapmeier. ” We should all be pilots. This isn’t a big deal. You can drive a car, you can fly an airplane, what else do you want to do today?”

Believe it or not, four hundred folks have ponied up 100-thousand dollars each as a deposit to make one of these “million dollar babies” their own. The Jet will be coming off of the production line in 2011.    I’ll be saving my pennies.  Oofta wouldn’t that be a great way to commute?

 Here is the Youtube press released from my beautiful city by the Big Lake.
