Sonaca Aircraft livre les deux premiers exemplaires du Sonaca 200
  
Les écoles d'aviation « Belgian Flight School » (BFS)[1] et « Air Academy New CAG » (New CAG)[2] prennent livraison des premiers Sonaca 200. Ces livraisons ont été planifiées dans la foulée de la certification EASA CS-VLA du Sonaca 200 obtenue en juin dernier[3].
Basées sur le site de Brussels South Charleroi Airport, BFS et New CAG forment des pilotes de ligne qui sont engagés par les compagnies aériennes du monde entier. « Le Sonaca 200 vient remplacer et renforcer la flotte de deux grandes écoles belges de pilotage » déclare Pierre Van Wetter,  Chief Commercial Officer de Sonaca Aircraft « Les contrats que nous avons signés avec ces deux écoles portent, en tout, sur l'achat de 16 Sonaca 200 dont 8 commandes fermes de Sonaca 200 Trainer et 8 options pour des Sonaca 200 Trainer Pro. Les avions restants (soit 6 appareils de la commande ferme) seront livrés aux clients d'ici le printemps 2019".
 Située sur l'aérodrome de Namur (Belgique), l'infrastructure de Sonaca Aircraft est en cours de développement : un nouveau hall d'assemblage d'une superficie de 2 000 m2 permettra de livrer jusqu'à 80 avions par an dès 2020.

Sonaca Aircraft levert de eerste twee exemplaren van de Sonaca 200

De vliegscholen "Belgian Flight School" (BFS)1 en “Air Academy New CAG" (New CAG)2 nemen de eerste 
Sonaca 200-toestellen in ontvangst. De leveringen werden gepland nadat de Sonaca 200 in juni zijn EASA CS-
VLA-certificaat behaalde3

.BFS en New CAG zijn gebaseerd in Brussels South Charleroi Airport, waar ze lijnpiloten opleiden die voor
luchtvaartmaatschappijen uit de hele wereld werken. "De Sonaca 200 komt de vloot van twee grote Belgische
vliegscholen vervangen en versterken", vertelt Pierre Van Wetter, Chief Commercial Officer van Sonaca Aircraft.
"De contracten die we met die twee scholen hebben afgesloten, betreffen de aankoop van in totaal zestien
Sonaca 200-toestellen: acht definitieve bestellingen van de Sonaca 200 Trainer en acht opties op de Sonaca 200
Trainer Pro. De resterende vliegtuigen (zes toestellen van de definitieve bestelling) worden tegen de lente van
2019 bij de klanten afgeleverd.

De infrastructuur van Sonaca Aircraft bij de luchthaven van Namen (België) is in volle expansie: dankzij een
nieuwe assemblagehal van 2.000 m2 kunnen er vanaf 2020 tot 80 vliegtuigen per jaar worden geleverd.

[Sonaca] : AYJET has signed a purchase agreement for 6 Sonaca 200 aircraft

Forwarded message - From: Frederique Jacobs

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.
About AYJET
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. www.ayjet.aero

Sonaca Aircraft performs static and fatigue analysis on the Sonaca 200 with the support of Sonaca's "Numerical Methods" team

Forwarded message - From: Frederique Jacobs 


Sonaca Aircraft performs static and fatigue analysis on the Sonaca 200 
with the support of Sonaca's "Numerical Methods" team

News:
  •       Static and fatigue analysis on the Sonaca 200 has been performed under Sonaca's SONIA virtual sizing environment
  •       Sonaca Aircraft is currently in the final phase of the Sonaca 200 flight test programme
  •       The delivery of the first Sonaca 200's is scheduled for the beginning of 2018
The static and fatigue analysis for the Sonaca 200, a single-engined two-seater designed for training and leisure flights, were undertaken entirely within the SONIA environment[1]. SONIA is a structural computing environment that has been developed by the aerospace equipment manufacturer Sonaca, and embed:
  •  the best computation software using the finite element method (SAMCEF, ABAQUS or NASTRAN);
  • sizing methods developed over more than 40 years by Sonaca's design office.
"SONIA automates and standardises our sizing process. It covers structure idealisation, load application, launch of analyses as well as result post-processing according to design requirements", explains Albert-Paul Gonze, Head of Sonaca's "Numerical Methods" team.
SONIA: a proven environment 
This approach has been developed over more than 15 years and has been validated by numerous tests. It is used for certifying Sonaca aircraft. It allows innovation in the design of aircraft and more efficiency in terms of weight reduction. "SONIA is able to solve very complex problems such as impact resistance, de-icing, non-linear behaviour, large deformation, fatigue analysis and damage tolerance, etc.", Albert-Paul Gonze says.
The Sonaca 200's 800 parts and 15,000 rivets
"We naturally turned to Sonaca for the sizing of the Sonaca 200. The Sonaca Group has significant experience in the sizing and certification of aeronautical structures for CS-25 category aircraft[2] whose certification criteria are much more stringent than those for the Sonaca 200", says Carl Dewandel, Head of Structure Compliance at Sonaca Aircraft. "In the specific case of the Sonaca 200, the digital model included the 800 parts and 15,000 rivets that make up the plane. SONIA has made it possible to precisely calculate the safety coefficients and to maximise the reliability of all the elements ".
Final stage of Sonaca 200 flight tests for EASA CS-VLA certification
After successfully passing the static test programme as well as all stability, noise, vibration, performance and stall tests, the Sonaca 200 begins the final flight-test phase (spin test). Sonaca Aircraft completes the steps to obtain DOA[3]. Delivery of the first aircrafts is still scheduled for the beginning of 2018.
