New From AeroConversions: The AeroBrake Hydraulic Braking System!

AeroConversions AeroBrake
Hydraulic Braking System:

Packages Starting At: $350.00

Sonex Aircraft, LLC is excited to announce another addition to the AeroConversions product line: the AeroBrake Hydraulic Braking System! Due to popular demand, the AeroBrake is the first hydraulic brake product specifically designed for use with Sonex Aircraft airframes. The versatile AeroBrake design may also be used on a wide-variety of other experimental aircraft designs. While Sonex has had great success with the standard Azusa mechanical brake system over the years, the AeroBrake offers improved stopping power and smooth braking action in a head-to-head comparison of the installations.

In-keeping with the Sonex and AeroConversions tradition of providing simple and elegant products for sport aviation, the AeroBrake employs a unique non-caliper design that allows convenient and easy removal of the wheel assembly for maintenance of tires, wheels & bearings. The AeroBrake uses a simple disk as a bolt-on addition to standard Azusa-1137 or equivalent wheels. The AeroBrake assembly retains the same axle-to-wheel spacing as the traditional Azusa drum brake installation, and the entire installation weighs the same as a drum brake installation using AeroConversions Machined Brake Drums. Designed to use a 3/4" axle, builders may use bushings to adapt the AeroBrake for use with smaller axles.

Full installation kits are available for Sonex/Waiex/Xenos or Onex aircraft installation, including a simple and robust master cylinder, allowing builders to retain Sonex Aircraft's trademark universal braking with the existing brake handle form & function, including use of the parking brake detent. Universal (non-differential) braking, combined with Sonex Aircraft direct-steering nose wheel or tail wheel, offer the most positive control of the aircraft while making Sonex Aircraft tail wheel aircraft some of the easiest tail draggers to fly. Builders may use their own alternative master cylinder(s) to mount the brake control to the stick, or if differential braking is desired. Installation kits also include new laser-cut wheel pant mounting plates designed specifically for AeroBrake installation.

The AeroBrake is competitively priced, with packages starting at $350. Upgrade price for new Complete Airframe Kit or Sub-Kit purchase is $300. AeroBrake packages will be in-stock and available for shipping during the month of February, 2013. Place your order today to receive the earliest shipping opportunity!
