Congratulations! First Sonaca 200 Trainer Pro delivered to AYJET last Saturday, September 7! This was the first of the six Sonaca 200 ordered by AYJET in August 2018.

On delivery of the first aircraft, AYJET renewed its confidence in Sonaca Aircraft by signing a new order for the purchase of 12 additional Sonaca 200 Trainer Pro, which brings the order to a total of 18 Sonaca 200 Trainer Pro.

"During the ferry flight (Namur-Istanbul), our pilot instructors particularly liked the aircraft’s reactivity, precision and stability, the comfort on board, the piloting position and the space between the pilots. The AYJET instructors also appreciated the aircraft’s fuel efficiency, a decisive factor in selecting our trainer aircraft" said Capt. Celal Cingoz, AYJET General Manager.

The new contract was signed on Monday 9 September, at the Consulate of Belgium in Istanbul in the presence of AYJET General Manager Capt. Celal Cingoz (AYJET General Manager), Harold van der Straten (Sonaca Aircraft CEO) and Pierre Van Wetter (Sonaca Aircraft Chief Commercial Officer).

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
