Sonaca Aerospace Transylvania (SAT), the Romanian subsidiary of the Belgian aerospace equipment manufacturer Sonaca, has achieved one full year of production and will continue to grow with new products.

SAT is working in collaboration with Airbus Defence and Space, and from the end of 2018 the company will support the production of the prototypes of the new Ariane 6 space launcher.

Sonaca Aerospace will begin the production of the Sonaca 200, the new generation, two-seater, certified aircraft which combines flight performance and cost-effectiveness, starting in July 2019. This new aircraft development has been performed in close collaboration with end-users, so as to fulfill flight school, aeroclub and private pilots’ unmet needs.

The Sonaca 200 is a low-wing, full metallic aircraft with a maximum take-off weight of 750 kg. Its conventional structure is composed of advanced aluminum alloy frames, stringers and sheets, which will provide very effective corrosion protection.

Already active in the production of composite parts and the assembly of A320 slats, SAT will support the sub-assembly of the Sonaca 200. In order to meet its new challenge and  support the development of its activities, SAT is strengthening its teams and is currently recruiting new employees.

Sonaca Group is active in the development, manufacturing and assembly of aircraft for the aerospace, civil, military and space markets. The company’s headquarters are in Gosselies, Belgium, and the Romanian factory is located in Moldovenesti, in Cluj County.
