Last September, the aerospace supplier Belgian Sonaca decided to extend its expertise in the field of general aviation through the creation of a new subsidiary: Sonaca Aircraft. The first objective of this new company is to develop and certify a new aircraft, a two-seat specially adapted for training and leisure flights.
The certification of this aircraft is well underway. Beside the Type Certification of the aircraft, we have also applied for a DOA (Design Organization Approval) and a POA (Production Organization Approval).
Newsletter July 2015
In order to make swift progress on the development of the certification aircraft we decided to join forces with a foreign partner to take advantage of an existing structure and adapted to the needs encountered.
This arrangement allows us to continue meetings in the airfield across Europe with the aim to properly refine our technical specifications based on the demonstration aircraft and also to obtain initial feedback from its aerodynamic behavior in flight.
Newsletter April 2015
To fully understand the needs in the general aviation sector, we met the last months, a lot of flight school, aero clubs and pilots through France, England, Germany, Canada and Belgium.
These meetings allowed us to establish the needs and the technical requirements for development of such a plane and avoid the mistakes not to commit.
