More weird eccentric that practical, and I think the FAA would have a stroke making up new paperwork, but you would be the first guy to the remote salmon camp. 

 
What's the range? Can you get to Macau and put it on red?

Maybe if you took careful aim, but you could only do it once and it would be anything but smooth. I'd recommend against it.

but now that you bring it up, I wonder if we could fit it with floats?

So the air ambulance guy I was helping fell apart and left a lot of debt and angry people behind. While dealing with them on options I finally put together a deal to clean up some of the problems and handle the legacy assets. I'm now the managing member of a new LLC called Aircraft Technologies, and this is our first confirmed new asset. 


 

There is one more that's actually in a lot better shape that will be official next week. 

Too bad I'm too poor to actually use them (they burn about $1,000 an hour in fuel, and have another $1,500 an hour in costs and maintenance reserves). But they go 400 MPH!

  
can you land it on your ship?

It's a pretty cool piece of kit.  The other one is in better shape and had a TON of money thrown at it in ~2006. They are pretty sleek for 40-50 year old planes (this one is a 1970 model). 

 
It is extremely cool looking.
