Also Clark S. Lindsey provides some information:

Clark notes:
The Press-Enterprise article also states that AERA currently has $1.2 million but needs to raise $15 million to $20 million to build the vehicle. Before flying passengers they would also, of course, need to get an AST license, which presumably would require several test flights. I hope they can do it but it sure seems ambitious to plan on flying ticketed passengers in 2006.
