Sonex To Unveil Green Powerplant At AirVenture


Sonex Aircraft says it will unveil a new proof-of-concept aircraft at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wis., later this month that’s propelled by a “revolutionary” environmentally friendly powerplant. Sonex and AeroConversions Products will reveal their E-Flight project at a press conference on Tuesday, July 24, at AeroShell Square, the center of the show at Oshkosh, the company said on Tuesday. The project is a research and development initiative to explore viable alternative energies for powering the sport aircraft of tomorrow, Sonex said. The aim of E-Flight is to reduce the environmental impact of sport flying, while keeping recreational aviation affordable. Sonex and AeroConversions will also host a forum on Wednesday, July 25, at 11:30 a.m. in forum building 11 (REMOS Aircraft Pavilion).
