Sonaca 200
The Sonaca 200 is an all-metal low-wing two-seater aimed at the pilot training market

 

Private jet company ASL is expanding to add pilot training to its business – and it has chosen the new Sonaca 200 two-seater as its ab initio flight training aircraft.

“ASL group wishes to develop its pilot training activity as well as specific training related to the world of business aviation,” said Philippe Blockmans, Elite Pilot Training Centre Manager at ASL Group.

“We have decided to invest in the Sonaca 200. As a Belgian company, we wanted to acquire an aircraft which is locally produced by an internationally renowned aviation stakeholder.

“We finally chose the Sonaca 200 for its performance and equipment as well as its operational and maintenance costs. After a detailed analysis of the product, it turned out that the Sonaca 200 met the current expectations of the (initial) pilot training sector.”
