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.

De vliegscholen "Belgian Flight School" (BFS)1 en “Air Academy New CAG" (New CAG)2 nemen de eerste

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.

JANUARY 2018
2018 HAS STARTED OFF WITH THE CLOSURE OF THE FLIGHT TEST PROGRAM, GETTING THE DOA (DESIGN ORGANIZATION APPROVAL, EASA) AND THE START OF THE ASSEMBLY OF THE FIRST MODELS OF THE SONACA 200. IMPLEMENTATION OF AN AMBITIOUS INDUSTRIAL PROJECT IS BEING CONDUCTED IN CLOSE COLLABORATION WITH THE SONACA GROUP.

Review of the Sonaca 200 static and fatigue analyses

Sonaca Aircraft quite naturally turned to Sonaca for the sizing of the Sonaca 200. "The Sonaca Group has significant experience in the dimensioning and certification of aeronautical structures for aircraft in the CS-25 category for which the certification criteria are much more stringent than those of the Sonaca 200" pointed out Carl Dewandel, Structure Compliance Manager, Sonaca Aircraft.

Review of the Sonaca 200 static and fatigue analyses

The Sonaca 200 static and fatigue analyses were fully carried out under the SONIA calculation environment. "SONIA is able to solve very complex problems such as impact resistance, de-icing, nonlinear behavior, cases of large deformation, fatigue analyses and damage tolerance, etc" explained Albert- Paul Gonze, Sonaca "Digital Methods" Department Manager.

In the specific case of the Sonaca 200, the digital model included the 800 parts and 15,000 rivets which make up the aircraft. SONIA has allowed us to accurately calculate the safety coefficients andmaximize the reliability of all the elements.


EASA has issued the DOA certificate to Sonaca Aircraft

In accordance with 216/2008 (EC) and 748/2012 (EU) Regulations, EASA has issued the "Design Organization Approval" certificate to Sonaca Aircraft (Part 21, section A, Subpart J.). To obtain the DOA, Sonaca aircraft had to demonstrate to the competent authorities that it has the necessary organization, procedures, authorities and resources to design and certify a CS-VLA type aircraft (in reference to the Sonaca 200).

Getting the DOA proves that we have a high level of technical maturity and mastery of our product. Thanks to the DOA, Sonaca Aircraft will have the privilege to certify certain modifications or repairs. This will allow us to be very reactive towards customer requests

— Simon André, Head of Independent Monitoring at Sonaca Aircraft


Sonaca Aircraft has closed the flight tests

After having successfully carried out the static test program as well as all the tests for stability, noise, vibration, performance and stalling, the Sonaca 200 closed its flight test program with the spin tests which proved to be conclusive.

The flight certification campaign is now over. The Sonaca 200 will be EASA certified for a take-off weight (MTOW) of 750 kg and a cruising speed of 115 knots.


First deliveries starting in March 2018

The first aircraft are scheduled to be delivered in March of this year.
In 2018, Sonaca Aircraft will produce 3 aircraft per month and will increase its production capacity to 5 aircraft per month in 2019.
Our team is at your disposal to show you and let you try out the Sonaca 200.
