06-30-16

Sonex and Waiex B-Model Kits:

Sonex Aircraft is excited to announce the first customer shipments of Sonex and Waiex B-Model kits! Two Waiex-B Kit Minus Tail packages and one Sonex-B Wing Conversion Kit left our warehouse this afternoon, with several more kits scheduled to ship over the coming weeks!

This event marks a significant milestone in an intensive new aircraft development program that only began last Fall. Our thanks and congratulations go-out to the entire Sonex Aircraft team who worked so hard to design, prototype, test, produce, organize, market, sell, pack and ship this new aircraft model in such a short period of time. We are very excited for early B-Model customers to experience all of the enhancements and the high quality put into these new kits.

Progress continues on the first customer B-Model Quick Build Kits, which will begin shipping immediately after EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016, and will be on-display in the Sonex shop for viewing during Sonex factory tours throughout the show!

The B-Model will be on-display in the Sonex Aircraft booth at AirVenture 2016, Booth# 622 in the North Aircraft Display Area. Be sure to check it out!

Sonex Aircraft in the News: SubSonex Personal Jet Featured in Twin & Turbine Magazine
06-29-16

SubSonex Quick Build Kit: $42,000

The SubSonex Personal Jet is in the news again, this time with a flight review by pilot/author Matthew McDaniel for Twin & Turbine magazine. Not only does the July issue of the publication feature the SubSonex, but the aircraft is this month's "Featured Plane!"

"Microjet Fun - Flying the SubSonex, with a Bonus!" can be read in the magazine's digital edition, and on page 6 of the print edition. Matt McDaniel covers the SubSonex aircraft, the transition training process with Desert Aerospace's BonusJet, and the SubSonex permanent LOA checkride process. With the availability of BonusJet training with the TJ-100 turbojet engine system, SubSonex pilots have an established avenue for qualifying and preparing to fly the single-place SubSonex.

The SubSonex will once again be featured at Sonex Aircraft, LLC's EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016 display, and in airshow performances throughout the week flown by 2015 Bill Barber award winner Bob Carlton.

With the SubSonex's new kit pricing, announced earlier this year, you too can be a jet pilot - pick-up your SubSonex Quick Build Kit for only $42K! Don't forget, you can see the SubSonex in action anytime via our YouTube channel's SubSonex playlist!
