Highly Advanced Technology and Many Advantages Some aviation experts believe that the SE 200 could revolutionize the aviation industry.  The prototype is configured with a high lift wing design which enables short distance takeoffs and landings.  That would increase the number of smaller airports that the aircraft could service.  The vehicle has a range of 10,560 miles and can hit top speeds of Mach .90 or
