Personally, I might feel more confident driving or riding with a Boeing auto engine. GM, Ford, and Chrysler are excellent, but frequently aerospace companies come up with ideas out of this world.

Appearently they are trying to bring general aviation to the general public. Even aquiring your pilots licence is somewhat of a "thing for the more wealthy" due to costs and licencings (and I could just imagine the insurance...). Notice I did not say a Thing for the ritch, but average Joe working at his 9-5 job trying to raise his family it is far out of reach. (Unless you do your banking through the same people as the BUSH ADMINISTRATION.... lol (not trying to start a political thing, just wish I HAD HIS BANKER ON MY SIDE!!!)
