Aero Locarno signs an agreement with Sonaca Aircraft for the purchase of 5 "Sonaca 200" aircraft
 
Namur (Belgium), 9 March 2020 - An accredited training organization1 (member of the Swiss Flight School Association, Swiss PSA), Aero Locarno has chosen the Sonaca 200 to complete and renew its fleet of training aircraft.
Following a comparative study, Aero Locarno decided to choose Sonaca Aircraft's two-seater singleengine aircraft.
“The Sonaca 200 clearly stands out from the crowd!” bluntly stated Stefano Buratti, Aero Locarno CEO. “With its aluminum structure, the Sonaca 200 is a robust and easy-to-repair trainer aircraft. Stable and agile, the aircraft proved to be easy to fly even in turbulent conditions. The Sonaca 200 is a spacious and
comfortable aircraft with optimal visibility on board. We have found our new aircraft for basic training!”. Aero Locarno is Sonaca Aircraft’s first Swiss customer. “We are convinced that the Sonaca 200 has its rightful place in Switzerland" said Pierre Van Wetter, Chief Commercial Officer of Sonaca Aircraft “The engine and high rates of climb are particularly well suited to mountain flying, regardless of the aircraft's payload.”
