Cobalt Valkyrie Batman Style Private Jet of The Future
A new light aircraft named the Cobalt Valkyrie has been designed and it looks more like a vehicle that batman would drive.
The cobalt Valkyrie has a canard front wing, sleek aerodynamic shape and a turbocharged 350 hp (260 kW) engine, its claimed to be capable of travelling at speeds of up to 300 mph and has capacity for up to five adults and their luggage.
The Valkyrie has a production time of 6 months from order and would be delivered to an airport of your choice.
Sporting a single, rear-facing, piston engine driving a three-blade carbon-fibre pusher propeller, the Valkyrie is claimed to be able to cover more than 1,400 nautical miles at 253 mph in economy mode with a pilot and one passenger.
Also claimed to have the largest, single-piece canopy in the world, the Valkyrie’s enormous, forward-tilting glasshouse cabin not only provides access to the leather-appointed interior, it also provides a 320-degree view for the pilot and passengers alike.
The exterior is crafted from composites and is available in a range of colours, including dark hues Cobalt says are not normally easily achieved in such materials.
Decked out with a huge array of modern electronic displays on the dashboard, there is also a specific space for an iPad. As for storage, Cobalt states that there is more than ample space for golf clubs, skis, and suitcases.
Standard with retractable landing-gear, the Valkyrie models also come with an optional extra in the form of a rescue parachute.
Deployable in case of catastrophic failure or complete loss of aircraft control, the parachute system is designed to lower the entire aircraft and its passengers safely to the ground.
Pre-orders have just been opened, and an experimental Valkyrie-X version can be had for US buyers as early as the middle of 2016 for a US$15,000 deposit now and the remainder of the $595,000 total when the craft is ready for delivery.
The ultimate, fully-certified version will be available by the middle of 2017 and set you back around $699,000, before options of course.
