As part of the renewal of its fleet, the Aéroclub de Camargue has selected the Sonaca 200.

“As an Airplane instructor, my choice fell on the Sonaca 200 because I found it very demonstrative, very flexible and precise in the functionality of the control surfaces, very pleasant to the controls but also because it has a very beautiful line. This choice was confirmed during the visit of the Sonaca 200 assembly line in Namur (BE) which I was able to make in my capacity as President of the Camargue Aéroclub. This aircraft will complete a Robin fleet and should meet the expectations of the members of our Aéroclub ”Jean Ruelle, President of the Aéroclub de Camargue.

The order relates to the Sonaca 200 Trainer New Generation (NG), the delivery of which is scheduled for July 2021. The latest addition to the Sonaca 200 family, the Sonaca 200 NG is fully equipped for night VFR flight. Based on the analog version, the Sonaca 200 NG integrates Garmin's Gi 275 digital instruments into its dashboard. A classic T-arrangement has been maintained for ergonomic and traditional reasons. The instrument panel is also equipped with a digital engine monitoring system.

The Camargue flying club is headquartered at Candillargues aerodrome. Its track, oriented south-east / north-west (14-32, see the VAC Map), turns towards the Grande Motte on the south side, and Pic St Loup on the north side. A non-profit association, the Aéroclub de Camargue has a fleet of two DR400 120 CV, F-HAAC and F-GGXD, and one DR400 160 CV, F-BUPS.
