So what’s your point? The criteria was “composite canard … jet”. Why not suggest a Lear Jet with the disclaimer “Perhaps not fully Composite..”


I am well aware of the jet-Viggen.. how long has it been consistently flying? How many hours are on it? 1000 lbs useful load? Seriously? What’s its range?


I’m fairly confident my statement was very accurate.

Well I think you are both wrong,  You seem to forget the Jet powered VariViggen, N31GC, with around 1000 lbs useful load. Perhaps not fully Composite but great utility. 

 Must get mine finished sometime.
