It’s a canard aircraft, which means it has a forewing that increases maneuverability and lift to prevent the plane from stalling in the air.

The propulsion engine is located in the back of the plane, which makes the ride in the cabin quiet and comfortable. It also has a super large canopy and a 320-degree view so you can really see the sky.
