I am very pleased to announce that my scratch built Sonex, s/n 1510 flew this morning, 7-20-2017 at 0730 to 0800 hrs at Finney Field, near Howe, and Sherman, Texas Field length is 2700 grass 180/360. Conditions were temp 79 deg, winds 7mph at 170. Initial lift off was spectacular! 'Sirpeedee" is N502PD, conventional gear, dual stick, lowered seat,center controls, and is currently unpainted. the AeroVee 2.1 engine performed flawlessly with takeoff rpm over 3000. CHTs were all less that 350 deg, EGTs were all less that 1100. I did not lean to increase temps because of it being first flight. Oil pressure remained at 65 psi, oil temp remained less that 200 deg for the 1/2 hour flight.The total engine time is 2.5 hrs, that includes ground testing. Both takeoff and landing were described by my ground crew of Clint Murphy, Bob Demunck, Steve Rief, and Jimmy Finney as Non events! Thanks guys!!! It is a great honor to finally understand that this very nimble aircraft is going to be so much fun to get to know better, and I too, now have 'Big Johns" Sonex grin as shown so often in the adds!!

Flew my Onex (SN0153) on Father's Day weekend with my Dad (and building assistant) in attendance. Got off the ground rather quickly and made a lap around the pattern to check some basics. Now time to tweak and work off the Phase I and collect flying data! Thanks to all who have touched my build in one way or another. For those on the fence, come on in.the adventure is fine!

Following successful low and high speed taxi test Tuesday, N465JC took to the sky for her maiden flight this afternoon at 4pm. The flight lasted 40 minutes. The flight consisted or 10, 20, & 30 degree banks, slow flight in both clean and landing configuration, climbs and descents, and a simulated go around, followed by a return to the airport for a go around and landing. The plane handled flawlessly and was a joy to fly. I had the Jeremy grin most of the time. 😊 Thank you for a wonderful design.

On Friday December 2nd, N13MB flew for the very first time.With Bob O’Haver at the controls, he departed New London, Ct, (GON) at 7:45 am. The initial flight was just over 30 minutes. Bob conducted some stalls, and slow flight followed by a low approach over the field. Shortly after 9:30am, and a pre flight briefing, I jumped in for a 35 minute flight over the Long Island Sound. The plane flew flawlessly, and handled far greater than I could have expected. The handling characteristics were smooth. Landing the plane was much easier than I had anticipated. With power at 88% at 5500 feet, I was seeing speeds at 210MPH. What a fantastic machine. I wanted to take the opportunity to thank all of the folks at Sonex, with special mention to Kerry, Levi, and Joe. I’m grateful for your patience and support. I also want to thank Bob Carlton, Bill Hill, and Bob O’Haver for their wisdom and attention to detail during the LOA training In New Mexico. The training makes for a great transition into this aircraft. Finally, to the team in Groton, Chris Bergman, Tim Pavkov, and Gerry Sykes, you guys did an amazing job, I thank you for your guidance and amazing talent in making this a reality. I look forward to enjoying this aircraft for years to come. Best regards, Andrew San Marco

ONEX N110NX flew for the first time on November 21st at Lewisburg Ellington Airport (LUG) in middle TN. My support team included my wife and fellow builder Karen, son Andrew who flew top cover with fellow pilot Dan Ford, Tech Counselor John Deyeager, and friends Tom Kempfer and Julie Roberts. The plane flew great with only small tweaks to the engine. After getting a few more take offs and landings I flew her home to our grass strip at Hunter Field (06TN) where we live. Thanks to all that helped to make this dream come true.

With three jobs, two kids, a home remodel and addition, and approximately 10 years of construction, Waiex N790EF took flight on November 9 2016, just in time before the New England weather landed. N790EF, serial #79, and 0EF (in honor of Operation Enduring Freedom), is configured with an Aerovee 2.1 engine with a Rotec TBI. Initial flight of the aircraft was excellent, with only minor tweaks of the tuning and rigging required. Test flying continues with initial cruise reports of 125-135 mph at published fuel burn. Special thanks goes out to my good friend Dana Thurston, of Restofab.net, for painting and accomplishing the finishing touches on the plane. Frank Stephens who helped me build a spar that belongs in an art gallery. Kevin Johnson and Herald Fuller for lending a helping hand and professional guidance, and when two arms wasn't enough. I would like to also thank my wife for tolerating my desire to build a aircraft, partly in my basement. And to all my friends who gave me support and the encouragement to continue the build.
