Stratos Aircraft, based in Bend, Ore., has built a full-size cabin of its Stratos 714 jet and plans to display it at EAA’s AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wis., beginning July 27.
Visitors and prospective buyers will be able to sit in the mock-up, try it on for size, and make suggestions about modifications before the company finalizes the design.
“The full-size mock-up clearly demonstrates the level of roominess and comfort we are aiming to achieve,” said Stratos CEO Michael Lemaire. “No amount of blueprints or renderings can replace actually sitting in the cabin.”
The Stratos 714 is designed to carry four adults 1,500 nm at 400 KTAS with IFR reserves. The airplane will be powered by a single Williams International FJ44 turbofan engine.
