Kitplane company Sonex Aircraft announced that its JSX-2 SubSonex Personal Jet flew on July 10. The initial goal of the flight-test program was to evaluate the single-engine jet’s systems, flight controls, gear and overall aircraft geometry, and handling through moderately high speeds. A second flight checked the function of the retractable landing gear and explored higher speeds. Sonex will begin taking orders after it has published performance numbers for the new jet, which is powered by a 250-pound-thrust PBS JT100 turbojet.
