Adam Aircraft A700
Adam Aircraft's A700 microjet is as anticipated as the Eclipse 500. It's derived from a twin-engine piston design and boasts carbon-fiber construction. The unique empennage, called a twin-broom construction, is supposed to create a more stable ride in turbulent conditions. Cruising speed is 391 mph and, unlike some of its rivals, the A700 boasts a lavatory. A production version of the A700 made its first flight in February and is expected to cost $2.25 million.

Specifications include a cruising speed of 391 mph and a takeoff distance of 3,120 feet.
