Somewhat Navion-like but altogether new, the Cobra is a 4/5 place very roomy, very comfortable looking aircraft that may also offer great visibility a 1000nm range and 155kt cruise speeds. Useful load for the 200hp version is 1105 pounds (there's a 315hp version that can carry 1260 lbs at 175kts). Evektor America is billing the all-metal retractable low-wing as a luxurious cruiser with the "widest cabin in its class" (51.1 inches). The Vut 100 Cobra is slated for full FAA Part 23 certification my next summer's (2007) AirVenture, but the company says positions for first U.S. deliveries are available, now. "Deliveries should start early next year, with FAR-23 certification approximately 6 months later," according to the company. If absolute room and comfort are your game, this may be one to watch.
