Personal planes — for all their time-saving, airport-skipping advantages — tend to have an unsettling, toy-like aesthetic. The Cobalt Co50 Valkyrie is the incredibly sleek exception to that rule.
Inspired by classic fighter jets, the aircraft boasts clean lines, a 320-degree plexiglass topper, and an aerodynamic “canard” forewing designed to prevent stalls.
Inside, there’s custom trim, hand-stitched leather seats, and room for five adults and their luggage.
And then there’s the hair-raising speed: it tops out at 260 knots (482 km/h) thanks to its 350 horsepower engine, with a range of 1,050 nautical miles. Get to the summer home in record time.
