Proof Of Concept SubSonex VVLJ Will Be Flying At Oshkosh

Company Also Adds New Quick Build Parts To Kits

JSX-1, the proof-of-concept prototype of the SubSonex very, very light jet will be flying during the Showcase presentation at AirVenture 2012! The SubSonex is currently scheduled to fly a 5 minute demonstration in three of the week’s pre-airshow showcases on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. The AirVenture showcase takes place between approximately 1430 and 1530 CDT each day, just prior to the air show.

JSX-1 will be piloted by famed air show pilot Bob Carlton. Carlton has flown much of the JSX-1’s flight test program for Sonex Aircraft, and is known for his Super Salto jet powered glider act, also appearing at AirVenture 2012. The SubSonex is a jet aircraft kit concept designed to cross “jet jock” off your bucket list in an easy to build, easy to fly premium kit package.

The prototype is being used to explore the viability of the design for a possible aircraft kit product in the Sonex Aircraft lineup. The aircraft has been extremely successful to date, and a second airplane, JSX-2, is already under construction with enhanced features.

See the JSX-1 up-close in the Sonex Aircraft booth display at AirVenture: North Aircraft Display area, Booth 622.

For Sonex kit-builders, the company said Thursday that it is adding new pre-fabricated parts to it’s popular Sonex and Waiex kit models, making the aircraft easier and faster to build than ever before.

Pioneered by the recently-introduced  Onex Single-Place Aircraft Kit, Sonex and Waiex Complete Airframe Kits and Sub-Kits now feature Matched-Hole Formed Parts. Adding over 100 new parts to each model’s kit package, the Matched-Hole Formed Parts kit consists of channels, angles and clips that would traditionally have been made by the builder from pre-formed sheet aluminum blanks provided in earlier Sonex Aircraft kits.

With matched pilot holes provided, these new kit parts not only reduce fabrication work for the builder, as they also reduce build time and increase build accuracy by cleco’ing to existing kit parts right out of the box. Builders can further decrease build time with the addition of the optional Machined Angle Component kit upgrade, making tail, fuselage and portions of the wing assembly fit together in almost no time.
