www.eaa.org

On May 13, 2015 at 7pm central time, Sonex CEO Jeremy Monnett will present an EAA-hosted webinar entitled "Flying a Jet-Powered Glider and the SubSonex Jet".

Do you ever dream of flying a jet? The SubSonex Personal Jet offers that opportunity in a more-affordable and accessible way than ever before! In this webinar, Jeremy discusses his experience completing the BonusJet TST-14 training program, eventually leading to his first flights in the SubSonex. This transition training program offers turbine engine system training with the PBS TJ-100 engine that is used by both the BonusJet TST-14 and the SubSonex, offering an avenue for pilots with no previous turbine experience to earn their LOA (letter of authorization) to fly the SubSonex Jet! Those with a glider rating can also earn an LOA for the BonusJet via this program. This EAA Webinar qualifies for FAA Wings Credit.
