Sonex Announces Single-Seat Jet


An article in EAA AirVenture Today reported that Sonex Aircraft unveiled a single-place jet at its open house on Sunday. The design is called the Sub-Sonex, according to the report, and John Monnett, company founder and president, said the goal is to keep the price under $50,000.

Reporter James Wynbrandt wrote that the jet weighs 330 pounds, with a 750-pound gross weight. It uses a modified version of a turbine used to power radio-controlled aircraft and develops up to 200 pounds of thrust. The plane has not flown, nor has the engine been run on the aircraft.

The Sub-Sonex will be on display at the Sonex booth, number 622.
