Whilst we are disappointed our future still doesn’t contain a personal jetpack (come on scientists, what are you playing at?!?!?), we are pleased to know that we can now purchase a personal aircraft to raise us above the traffic chaos.
The Valkyrie from Cobalt Aircraft is one of the fastest piston aircraft on the market, producing speeds of up to 300MPH.
It looks to be inspired by classic fighter jets, with clean lines and premium finishes.
The exterior comes in a range of custom finishes including dark colours, typically harder on composites. So if you fancy Bruce Wayne black, speak to Cobalt and pre-order now.
The interior features premium hand stitched leather seats, customisable platings and trim materials. It comfortably seats five people, including the pilot, with ample storage for golf clubs, skis and suitcases. It also has the largest one-piece canopy in the world, providing an unrivalled visibility to pilots and passengers alike.
Cobalt promotes the highest standards of safety in the industry. The Valkyrie has a “canard” configuration, with a forewing that acts as an aerodynamic fuse to prevent stalls. An airframe parachute is also provided as an option.
Manufactured exclusively in California, the Valkyrie costs $595,000 – $699,000 depending on your configuration.
