Sonex Aircraft LLCs first proof-of-concept prototype of the SubSonex JSX-1 will take to the Oshkosh skies during the pre-air show showcase presentations this week.

The SubSonex is currently scheduled to fly a five-minute demonstration in three of the week's showcases: Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. The showcase will begin between approximately 2:30 and 3:30 p.m. each day, just prior to the air show.

JSX-1 will be piloted by famed air show performer Bob Carlton. Carlton has flown much of the JSX-1's flight-test program for Sonex Aircraft LLC and is known for his Super Salto jet-powered glider act, also appearing in the air shows this week.

The JSX-1 proof-of-concept prototype is being used to explore the viability of the design for a possible aircraft kit product in the Sonex Aircraft lineup.

Using the PBS TJ-100 engine package, the aircraft has been extremely successful, and JSX-2 is already under construction, with enhanced features.

See the JSX-1 up close at the Sonex Aircraft display in the North Aircraft Display area, booth 622.
