As part of its fleet renewal, the Aeroclub de Versailles, which is located at the Saint-Cyr-L'école (LFPZ) aerodrome, has selected the Sonaca 200.

Following a comparative study, the Aeroclub chose Sonaca Aircraft's two-seater single-engine aircraft. "We were looking for a sound, robust and demonstrative aircraft to train our pilots. The aircraft’s technical specifications and the flight tests convinced us! The excellent contact with Sonaca Aircraft - their professionalism, skill, attentiveness and dialogue - was also a determining factor, as was the assistance and after-sales service guarantee" Jean Parpaleix, President of the Aeroclub de Versailles.

The Aeroclub de Versailles has ordered 2 Sonaca 200 "Trainer" type aircraft with deliveries scheduled for March and April 2021.
