turbines in his Cri Cri together with AMT on-board automatic
start-up units and individual EDT's. (AMT is a company from Netherlands. )
The Cri Cri weighs 170 Kg (375 lbs), and should have enhanced

only one engine the speed is still 160 km/hour (100 mph).

he former pilot and helicopter pilot as you know. but this was just too cute to pass on. however pops say something cautionary and that is such ultra light plane are very dangerous to fly. micro burst and high wind and even bird strike could destroy little plane in just seconds. it is fun looking little plane but could be very very dangerous to fly.

your friend,

I'll stick to flying Cessnas
