Cobalt je kompanija smještena u San Francisku, California, a ovo je njihov Co50 Valkyrie ...

... (i Valkyrie-X) model. Naručuje se uz depozit od svega 15.000 dolara, a rezervacije počinju 2017. godine. Dakle nisu oni blizu početka prodaje, no inžinjerski je svakako zanimljiv aviončić, razvoj je trajao 10 godina, a sa cijenom od 699.000 dolara predstavlja i jedan od najsigurnijih aviona. Najveća brzina je 260 čvorova, što je oko 480 km/h. Ostali jednomotorci su sporiji 40-ak km/h. Inžinjerski je zanimljiv jer je motor snage 350 KS smješten pozadi. A letjelica ima i padobran, za slučaj problema. 

“10 years ago, I had a vision to disrupt the aviation industry with an innovative private aircraft, that is not only technologically sound and safe, but also design-centric and luxurious,” says David Loury, founder and chief executive officer of Cobalt. “Today, Cobalt is no longer just a prototype. It’s a world class aircraft, complete with advanced safety, technology, and modern design features for travel-loving consumers and aviation enthusiasts.”

Costing $699,000 in full, the Co50 can fit five people (including the pilot) and can reach a maximum speed of 260 knots (299 mph)—for comparison, other single engine aircraft generally hit a max of 242 knots. Because the propulsion 350 hp engine is in the rear, the cabin promises to be quiet and comfortable. Built with a forewing to prevent it from stalling mid-air, the design also features an onboard parachute.
