AYJET has signed a purchase agreement for 6 Sonaca 200 aircraft

AYJET, an approved Training Organization and a flight school based in Istanbul (Turkey), has selected the new Sonaca two-seater single-engine aircraft.
In consideration of the increasing demand and collaboration with airline companies for pilot training, AYJET has decided to enlarge its fleet and after a rigorous search AYJET has chosen Sonaca Aircraft. Sonaca Aircraft's high  experience and well-equipped aircraft have been decisive in AYJET's desire to work with them.
"The Sonaca 200 aircraft's robust construction, low operating cost and outstanding performance for flight training have played an important role in purchasing" declared Captain Pilot Salim Onur, AYJET Chief Flight Instructor.
AYJET has decided to purchase 6 Sonaca 200 aircraft in order to enlarge its aircraft fleet. AYJET plans to enlarge its fleet with Sonaca planes and globally develop this new partnership in the future.
Turkish Civil Aviation has entered a rapid growth trend since the year 2000. As a natural result of this development, a select group of captain pilots, who have dedicated themselves to aviation, anticipated that the need for pilots would increase and established AYJET Approved Training Organization in 2005. From Private Pilot Licenses (PPL) to Airline Transportation Pilot Licenses (ATPL-Frozen) in modular training, ATPL(A) Integrated Training and MPL training with SunExpress Airlines, AYJET has the authority to give flight training at all levels. Therefore, AYJET aims to become one of the world's leading Flight Training Centers.AYJET has a fleet of 19 DA20-C1 Eclipse SEP and 3 DA-42 Twinstar MEP aircraft and 3 flight simulators FNPTII, which are conveniently located at Hezarfen Airport, making it an appropriate training environment far from Istanbul's congested air traffic.
