SubSonex Factory Prototype #2.

SubSonex Personal Jet now more affordable

Sonex Aircraft, LLC is excited to announce a new sales strategy for the SubSonex Personal Jet, with a drastically reduced airframe price to put this unparalleled aircraft into the hands of more pilots! The SubSonex package is now available in separate purchases of Airframe, PBS TJ-100 engine, optional BRS package, and other optional accessories. The SubSonex airframe is available as an EAB-compliant Quick Build kit package for the amazing price of $42,000! The very-complete airframe kit only needs engine, avionics, upholstery and finishing materials in-order to fly, offering a “Sub-100 SubSonex” kit plus engine package for only $97,000, and allowing customers to split those costs over the span of the aircraft's build time.

“At this phase of the aircraft's development, many previously-unknown cost factors have been defined, and we can apply more-efficient costing and Quick Build construction processes to produce the kit,” remarked Sonex GM Mark Schaible. The SubSonex program has reached a tremendous level of maturity in its design and production phases of development. The aircraft has reached a level of maturity when it comes to flight test and fleet hours with reliable service as well, thanks in large part to the efforts of Bob Carlton: flying many test flight hours in JSX-2 N141SJ, plus multiple aerobatic performances (day and night) at 9 airshows during the 2015 show season with many practice and media flights. In addition, Sonex now has its second JSX-2 prototype flying, N241SJ, along with first flights of the first customer-built SubSonex by Redge Greenberg. Milestones in pilot certification have also been passed, with 10 LOA's issued to-date for the SubSonex design, which further cements a place for the SubSonex within FAA policy. “We have a great airplane that has been thoroughly tested, refined and well-proven,” continues Schaible, “an airplane that satisfies the wildest flying dreams of most pilots: to own and fly a little aerobatic jet 'fighter.' We need to make the dream a reality for more pilots, and get back to our 'Reality Check' roots by making this fantastic aircraft design attainable to more pilots.”
