Cobalt is a private aircraft manufacturer, their first model, Valkyrie, is super sleek and built for speed. It’s the fastest in its class (single piston engines), with the ability to travel up to 260 knots, as opposed to the typical 242 knots. It’s also safer than most private planes, according to Cobalt.The craft is canard style, equipped with a forewing to prevent the plane from stalling mid-air, and comes with a five-seater, single-piston engine on the backend for smoother, safer take-offs and landings. Sarah Buhr speaks with Cobalt CEO David Loury about the new Cobalt Valkyrie.
