SubSonex Jet Prototype to Fly in AirVenture Showcase
Sonex Aircraft, LLC has announced that JSX-1, the #1 proof-of-concept prototype of the SubSonex very light jet, is set to fly during the Showcase presentation at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2012.
JSX-1 will be piloted by famed air show performer Bob Carlton, who has flown much of the JSX-1¹s flight test programme for Sonex Aircraft, LLC and is known for his Super Salto jet powered glider act, also appearing at AirVenture 2012.
The SubSonex is a jet aircraft kit concept in an easy-to-build, easy-to-fly premium kit package. The JSX-1 proof-of-concept prototype is being used to explore the viability of the design for a possible aircraft kit product in the Sonex Aircraft lineup. Using the PBS TJ-100 engine package, the aircraft has been very successful to date, and JSX-2 is already under construction with enhanced features.
The SubSonex is currently scheduled to fly a five-minute demonstration in three of the week¹s pre-air show showcases, on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. The AirVenture showcase takes place between approximately 2:30pm and 3:30pm each day, just before the air show.
