Why does author use "but" in there? Today I've an article about solar powered airplane HB-SIA. There was following sentence: "There is room for but a single person aboard HB-SIA, and the cockpit is best described as cozy." Why does author use "but" in there?

It's an old-fashioned way of saying 'only'.
