Least Expensive JetThe least expensive jet
Which is the most inexpensive and most expensive jet aircraft in today's world?
Eurofighter Typhoon is the most expensive hunter. $128 million a flat. Typhoon's cost plate is higher than the F-35, Su-57 fifth class combatants, although Typhoon is a 4++ class warrior. Taifun is a twin-engine, multi-role hunter. The Typhoon was manufactured in cooperation with BAE Systems, Airbus and Leonardo.
Taifun is used in the air forces of all above mentioned countries and some others. lf a combatant has a shot at F-22, it's the typhoon. This state-of-the-art feature and the urge to make a win from all three development firms gave the Taifun a high $128 million prize.
NOTE:- The F-22 Raptor is more expensive than Taifun, which has a price of $150 million per typhoon, but since Lockheed Martin was forbidden by the U.S. federal administration to resell it to another state, I did not consider it because no other state can buy it. MiG-29 is the most inexpensive and still capable aircraft.
MiG-29 costs $25 million a session. MiG-29 can be upgrade to its SMT or UPG versions for $15 million each, which means a combined cost of $40 million. The MiG-29 was designed by the Russian Micoyan Gurevich Design Bureau. It'?s a twin-engine lightweight. Today he is the most agile of the fighters due to his low mass and his curved rear wing as well as his missing bodywork.
MiG-29 is inexpensive and has fewer functions. However, these issues do not present great dangers, as the MiG-29 is intended for combat in its own back yard, where it can receive assistance from AWACS and air-to-air refueling vehicles. The MiG-29 is the best option for countries with a smaller defense budgets and for those who want to buy in large numbers.
I' m a pilot: Zirrus SF50 sight beam
The Cirrus SF50 Vision Jet does not claim to be a rival in a lightweight aviation recess already dominant with twin-engine Embraer, Honda and Textron planes.... Instead, it is the first of a new category of "personal" jet engines to close the gulf between reciprocating and turbojet airplanes. In 2006, when the plane entered the airplane business, Cirrus forecast that it would be the "lowest, slower and cheapest" jet on the water.
