Czech aircraft manufacturer Evektor will in 2008 launch serial production of its Cobra piston single. The all-metal, four-seat aircraft Cobra, which will be priced between $300,000 and $400,000, will be targeted at the private flyer and training markets. Two versions of the aircraft are being touted by the Kunovice-based company - the VUT 100-120i powered by a 200hp (150kW) Textron Lycoming IO-360-A1B6 engine and the 315hp Lycoming IO-580-B1A-powered VUT 100-131i.
