Thanks to popular demand, Sonex now offers a dual stick option for all B-Models, including the Sonex, Waiex and Xenos. Customers wishing to convert their existing B-Model aircraft can purchase a retrofit package for $1500. New B-Model kits can be upgraded to include dual sticks for $760.
This change includes a new universal seat pan installation that accommodates not only dual stick, but center configuration installations as well. It also features a removable forward seat pan to improve access for autopilot servo installations and the installation and service of avionics sensor antennas and boxes.
The removable forward seat pan is installed with a piano hinge and includes cover plates for unused center stick or dual stick locations. The dual stick installation weighs approximately 2.25 pounds more than the center stick install. Dual stick B-Model upholstery options are coming soon.
