The dream of owning your own fighter jet can become a reality with the Saker S-1, which is set to be deliverable to consumer buyers in 2019. Capable of almost reaching Mach 1 speeds (it caps out at .99), the Saker S-1 will surprisingly not require military training in order to operate it; a standard pilots license will grant those who can afford the $5-million price tag clearance for takeoff.

The Saker S-1 is essentially a more simplified version of a military grade jet because, as it stands, it likely wouldn't be the best idea to provide consumers with jets capable of supersonic speeds and maneuvers. The Saker S-1 can be outfitted with an emergency ejector seat if things go wrong while in-flight.
