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.
