November 14, 2013 - Sonex Aircraft is now including its new 4-inch machined tail wheel assembly with wheel as standard equipment in all new standard gear-configured aircraft kits, the company announced Monday.
The machined tail wheel assemblies, valued at $175, offer improved durability and ground clearance versus the standard welded tail wheel caster assemblies, the company stated - especially on grass runways. Built from machined and black-anodized billet aluminum with a zinc-plated steel steering arm, the assembly provides an additional inch of ground clearance.
An upgrade to the 6-inch machined tail wheel assembly with wheel is a $100 option. Learn more on the Sonex website.
