Cessna TTx

Price: $733,950

Available: Since March 2013

Range: 1,250 nautical miles

The Cessna TTx is the airborne equivalent of a high-performance luxury sedan, boasting the fastest maximum cruise speed of any single-engine piston – 235 knots, or roughly 270 mph – and seating for four. It also has enough range to supplant domestic commercial flights, whether you're flying solo or taking a modest-size group on vacation. The TTx's best feature might be its ESP (Electronic Stability and Protection) autopilot system, which automatically kicks in if the pilot becomes incapacitated, initiates a stall, or otherwise loses control of the craft.
