First Flight For Sonex Jet

Sonex Aircraft flew its JSX-2 single-seat single-engine jet for the first time, in July. The jet was subsequently flown several more times and proved “fast and smooth,” according to test pilot Bob Carlton. Carlton said he practiced stalls in the jet and flew at speeds above 200 mph. The company said it plans to start production of the airplane this year, and will start deliveries in 2015. The airplane will be sold as a quick-build kit with a price of $135,000. The JSX-2 is powered by the PBS TJ-100 engine, which produces about 250 pounds of thrust, the company said.
