Speed *and* fuel efficiency?

I don’t care that it holds only one person. When can I buy one of these?

190 knots true airspeed at 17,500 feet burning 3.5 gallons per hour — very nice! He can get 50 miles to the gallon at that setting (comparable to an economy car), or 100 miles to the gallon at a more economical power setting (comparable to a motor scooter).

    I thought that the Vary-EZ had room for 2. Rutan design = Genius

    I’m pretty sure there’s a back seat. And while you’re at it, why not step up to the Berkut fully RG version?

    I thought the second seat was what made the Long-EZ long when compared to the Vari-EZ?
