David Loury


An aerospace engineer, French entrepreneur and designer, David has a vision to disrupt air travel. David created the first design-driven private aircraft company, Cobalt, based in San Francisco, California.

10 years ago in Paris, David drafted the first sketches of his aircraft designs and registered Cobalt as a company in 2008. Cobalt raised its first round of seed funding during the same year.

After a decade of continued, successful development, Cobalt flies on a regular basis in California and has begun production of customer planes. The rare appearances of the Valkyrie has brought tremendous amounts of interest and pre-orders. The Valkyrie is stunningly sleek, and goes a big step further in safety and performance.

David has a Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Tech in aircraft design as well as a physics and economics degree from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Nancy. He received his private pilot license in 2001, and started his career at Altran, a global leader in innovation and high‐tech engineering consulting, where he focused on aerospace consulting.
