JSX-1, the SubSonex proof-of-concept prototype will once again be featured in flight demonstrations during the showcase presentation at AirVenture Oshkosh 2013. The SubSonex Personal Jet concept was first unveiled at AirVenture in 2009. After successful pairing with the PBS TJ-100 engine, the SubSonex JSX-1 prototype achieved first flight in August 2011 and completed a successful flight test program in 2012. Second-generation JSX-2 prototypes are currently under construction to serve as ³conforming² prototypes representing the final SubSonex Personal Jet product. JSX-2 will incorporate many new features and enhancements, including fully retractable gear with a steerable nose wheel, a full-airplane ballistic parachute system, larger cockpit, increased fuel capacity and more.
