Stratos Aircraft is also targeting the four-seat VLJ market, but its entry has one engine, a 3,030-pound-thrust Williams International FJ44-3AP, and more ambitious performance goals, including a 415-knot max cruise, 41,000-foot maximum altitude and 1,500-nm NBAA IFR range (100-nm alternate). Stratos is seeking to raise $12 million to build two flying prototypes and is taking $50,000 refundable and escrowed deposits. Stratos is planning to exhibit its cabin mockup at next month’s NBAA Convention. First flight of a prototype is planned for the fourth quarter of next year, followed by certification and entry-into-service in the fourth quarter of 2012.
