This Week's Question | Previous Week's Answers


Last week, we asked what AVweb readers would be willing to pay to fly the Martin Jet Pack.

Not much, apparently. 64% of our readers answered you couldn't pay me enough (!), and another 32% said the $30,000 Martin is asking on eBay is too much.

Only eight AVweb readers (at press time) said the opportunity is worth the asking price and with less than a day left to go in the eBay auction, a few bidders have already raised their electronic bidding paddles.

Congress is looking into concerns over safety on commuter airlines. We'd like to know if you're concerned.

Do you think there are safety problems with regional airlines?
