On September the 14th, (Birthday Gift) my four and a half year project Sonex SN# 773 (N773SX) took to the air. This was the second plane I built with the first one being a Waiex SN# 38 which I flew for 414 hours in about 5 years. The project was worth every minute and as for the joy and thrill of the first flight, absolutely amazing. I flew for 34 minutes in the pattern and then landed. To those of you out there still building and looking for motivation to complete your projects, trust me when I say, get on with it, it is worth every minute of the build when you make that first flight. Make it happen folks, make it happen. To John Monnett and his great staff - not much I can add to what they have accomplished. Thank you Sonex. To my wife, I see the honey do list on the refrigerator door has grown substantially over the last 4.5 years, if you stop buying me Sonex kits to build I promise I will get to your list. Seriously, thanks for all your help and support.

On Sunday, July 10, 2016, at 7:25 AM, Sonex S/N 1359 flew for the first time after 5 ˝ years of construction. Plane and VW performed great! N9SN received its Special Airworthiness Certificate June 28 from EAA Hall of Fame DAR Lowell Farrand. Transition training in June also made the first flight less tense with a special thanks to Bob Helm for all of the coaching from the right seat during my training/flight review over a weekend; with thanks to Kerry and Joe also for all those questions answered during the build. Big thanks to my wife for lending the sometimes needed additional hand - she is now fully cleco and pop rivet qualified - and for making my upholstery. And special thanks also to all the members of EAA Chapter 110 in Louisville for all of their help along the path of this journey.

On May 25, I took my Sonex N315AL, Jabiru 3300 powered, (SN# 1589), tail wheel, dual stick up for its first flight.  After 3 yrs. 8 1/2 mo. it was great to finally be in the air.  Everything worked great except for the EGT’s going in the red.  I thank Sonex for designing such a great plane.         I want to thank my wife, son Roy, Mike Smith, Dana Thurston, Dan Raycroft, Bill Waters, Brian Lloyd, Tech Advisor Bob DiMeo and all the members of EAA Chapter 106 for all their help, advice and encouragement.  May every Sonex builder have the support from people such as these.                 Al Lavender
