PiperJet Announced, Team Giz Pumped for 2010 Delivery

While we've enjoyed our HondaJet which we use to link our transcontinental Gizmodo team together (I'm lying), we've grown tired of that and are now ready for our PiperJet, a single-engine, six-passenger aircraft that can fly at 414mph at 35,000 feet with a cruising range of 1496 miles. It's just perfect for our six-man crew, capable of carrying a fully-fueled payload of 800 pounds, and here it is in its Gizmodo livery, ready for some high-altitude, but not necessarily high-brow, blogging.

Only problem is, we'll have to wait until 2010 for delivery, but the price is right, especially for a full-fledged jet: $2.2 million. If GizTraffic keeps booming the way it is now, that 2010 timeframe ought to be just about right. After all, we're number one, aren't we? More pics of the jet after the jump.
