If you’ve got $700,000 lying around, you might want to consider purchasing Cobalt’s new Valkyrie, an expertly designed, high performance aircraft that looks like a million bucks.
It can cruise at 220 knots for nearly 1500 nautical miles, guzzling 15 gallons of gas per hour along the way. It’ll hit 240 knots for over 1,000 nautical miles, which will cause it to devour 22 gallons per hour. It is equipped with an aircraft parachute system, interiors by ex-Hermes craftsman, a glass instrument panel that includes an iPad holder (in case you want to browse Reddit while flying), and a huge F-16-esque canopy with 320 degree view. The airplane surprisingly has seating for five and all of their baggage, and sports a turbocharged 350 horsepower Continental engine. It’s still in the conceptual stage, and there are four other Valkyrie prototypes being tested. But since Cobalt has been designing it for nearly ten years, it’s likely that we’ll see a final build relatively soon. [Purchase]
