Re: Here's what happened to the jet powered Quickie

This aircraft (ARES) has been modified a few times to be a test bed for a number of systems. It has been observed a few times moving in and out of Paul Allen's hangar in Washington. It has over 300 hours on the airframe. The registration lapsed at the end of 2016, so may be non-flying status. The registration was still listed with Scaled Composites, but since Paul Allen is a part owner of Scaled, that may have been a formality. Would love to see it fly at an airshow. Maybe Jerry Marstall can buy it from Paul Allen, since JM is single pilot jet rated!

Cheers,
Jay Scheevel, Tri-Q, still building
