Cobalt has introduced the Co50 Valkyrie ($699,000), a high-end aircraft inspired by fighter jets. The Valkyrie is the fastest private aircraft in its class, able to travel at up to 260 knots, compared to 242 knots for similar aircraft.

The interior features premium leather seating, hand-stitched by a former Hermes craftsman and a simple on/off switch dashboard design, including iPad dock.

  • Turbocharged 350HP, retractable, IFR-capable engine
  • Oxygenized non-pressurized cabin (No FIKI)
  • 1050 nautical miles cruising range with NBAA IFR reserves
  • Interior and exterior fully customizable upon request
  • Anti-ice system optional
  • Garmin certified glass cockpit expected
  • Dimensions: 30 ft L (10m) x 30 ft. W (10m) x 10 feet H (3m)
