Default CARF Bolt

CARF's new project has broken ground. Bolt is an ultra high performance sports jet. It breaks down into easy to transport pieces, nose and top cover comes off as one to allow superb access.
2.8m long and a little over 2.3m span. 220N and up turbines.

Lots more details to come, on sale in 2020.

Looks as sleek as the EA Rouge. Surely to be a nice flyer.

Are there anymore details on the Bolt yet? Not seeing much on the CARF Web site. I would really like to know if this beast is going to be fully bypassed? That will really make it a slippery airframe with some serious top speed “Need for Speed”. I see lot of large airframes out there yet none I’ve seen so fare are bypassed, if the Bolt was bypassed it would set it apart from the rest. It would get my dollars on my next large jet.

Yes fully ducted for speed. More info will be posted in the New Year. This is a time for family, so please be patient.

(The V1 Mephisto was fully ducted 2 years ago-it was never designed for speed)
