In March 2020, Aero Locarno, based in Switzerland, signed a contract for five Sonaca 200 Trainer Pros. The approved training organisation has now decided to double the initial order, bringing the revised order to a total of 10 aircraft. 

"Even though we are going through a difficult time in aviation, we are seeing a steady demand for training which justifies the investment in a brand new fleet. We feel the need to harmonise our aircraft fleet by acquiring additional Sonaca 200 Trainer Pros. The Sonaca 200s will replace our old Cessnas. It goes without saying that glass cockpit and state-of-the-art aircraft will further spark interest in our school," commented Stefano Buratti, Aero Locarno CEO.

The first six aircraft will be delivered from February 2021.
