Luxury Aircraft: Advanced Technology Group's aerobatic Javelin MK-10 is a civilian aircraft that performs like a military plane. So, it is no coincidence that it looks more like a fighter plane than a business jet. It is 37 feet long and has a wing span just over 25 feet. Its design comes directly from ATG's MK-20, which is a military trainer that was developed in conjunction with Israel Aircraft Industries.

The MK-10 already has a long list of pilots awaiting its official 2008 arrival. It offers sporty looks and awesome performance, as it is capable of climbing 10,000 feet in 60 seconds and cruising mach 0.75 (575 mph). The Javelin's ceiling is 45,000, and its IFR range is 1,000 nm (1,150 miles).

The Javelin's fuselage and wings are made of lightweight carbon fiber reinforced plastic, which results in increased stiffness, improved corrosion-resistance and higher tolerance to damage. Its bonded construction also improves the plane's aerodynamics due to less screws, bolts, and rivets used on the frame. Two Williams International turbofans power the Javelin. Despite being a single-file, two-seater, the Javelin is comfortable with its three-feet wide seat compartments. The cargo area holds up to 200 pounds of luggage.

Since the MK-10 is a multi-engine jet aircraft, a type rating is required to pilot it. Pilots with at least 1,500 hours total time and a multi-engine rating should have no problem obtaining the type rating. The Javelin type rating training is included with the purchase. For those lacking these pre-requisites, ATG can make special arrangements to assist pilots achieve the required rating.

The Robb Report included the Javelin MK-10 on its Best of the Best 2006 report, and reported that the high-performance executive jets would be priced around $2.8 million.
