Cirrus Design’s VK-30 is a mid-engine aircraft that is conventionally powered as well as highly streamlined. The VK-30 resembles the LearAvia Lear Fan in outward appearance though having a single engine whereas the Lear Fan had a side-by-side twin engine arrangement. The VK-30 is also a large and highly capable home build design since it can carry as many as five passengers aloft as far as 1300 miles (2106km) and as fast as 250 mph (405kph).

Information for this post came from this Wikipedia link, as well as the FAA registry, and this aircraft is displayed outside the entrance of the Florida Air Museum.
