Saker Aircraft S-1

Saker Aircraft S-1

Saker Aircraft from California brings military performance and style to general aviation pilots, opening up a whole new class of aircraft for those of us who can afford such a luxurious life style.

The ability to fly out of 5000+ U.S. and many more airports worldwide will save you time between your home or office, and your destination. You choose the when and where... your jet is ready wherever and whenever you need it.

While this jet may look a lot like a gas guzzling fighter jet, it actually uses one of the most fuel efficient engines in the industry and utilizes advanced aerodynamics to severely reduce drag. The S-1 uses 20% less fuel than the competitors, while accomplishing the mission almost twice as fast.

The Saker S-1 makes any trip in record time. Cruise together with the airlines along the airways at up to 0.99 Mach. That’s a mile every 6 seconds.....but who’s counting?
