Increasing the size of the aircraft by 17%, the designers created a spacious, climate-controlled cockpit able to accommodate pilots over 6-foot-5. The larger fuselage translates to 25 cubic feet of cargo space with accessibility from exterior luggage doors and behind the aft seat. Using the Pratt & Whitney JT-15-4D turbofan engine, maximum range for the Viper FanJet is estimated at 1500 n.m., the company says.
Product innovation has extended beyond design into the manufacturing process. Viper simplified its parts manufacturing through enhancements in the tooling process. These refinements will reduce customer build times by more than 25%, according to the company.
