Today was the day, all the trials and tribulations ended here. Thank you [Sonex Tech Support] for being available to hold my hand and thank you Sonex for a great kit. The build was a pleasure and a great satisfaction even if I never got to fly it. I’m looking forward to many more hours in 107X.

Attached are some photos that my friend Mike Singleton took of the aircraft last Thursday on the date of the first flight (by me) and the second flight (by him).  [Mike Singleton serves as the EAA Technical Counselor and Flight Advisor for Bruce, and many other Texas builders!] Mike Singleton has posted a nicely edited video (it makes my landing look good) on YouTube of the first and second flights: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=D8qs8O9SKY0&feature=youtu.be&rdm=11jt6q3h7&layout=mobile&client=mv-google

Xenos X0045 with AeroVee and dual controls flew for first time 12/26/13. Constuction took 3 years to the week. Flew straight and level on first flight. My best compliment was from first flight pilot E Able with a big smile, “ you have got yourself a good airplane”. Further flights have shown stalls to be at expected speeds and easy to complete and at the other end of spectrum Vne was straight , level and no flutter. Now to get my endorsements back current. Want to give big thanks to Kerry and Jeremy for all the tech support I received.

On December 3, 2013 plans-built Sonex 1306 flew for the first time from the Pompano Beach Airpark, Florida (PMP)in the very nervous hands of builder and owner Clarence Dunkerley. Thankfully she flew as advertised and was a delight to takeoff and land. This completed a three year project by my brother, Don and me that was challenging, at times frustrating but mostly an interesting and fun time together. Our thanks to the Sonex family for the excellent plans and support, especially beginning with the Sonex Builders Workshop, ongoing technical support and ending with the Joe Norris' transition training program. Joe -- N119CX flew and landed exactly as you demonstrated to this old pilot - Thanks. A big thanks for the support of my wife, Linda and our family and friends.

First flight went very well. No issues with controls on the airplane. Aerovee performed as expected. I do have a cylinder that is hotter than the others, but I think some work on the baffles will improve it. I'm glad I took advantage of transition training, it helped lessen the anxiety of that first approach and landing. Thanks to my ground crew, Joe Nelsen and Cory Maydew.

I want to thank all of you at Sonex for the support you've given.  It's great to get back in the air.  Being an active duty Soldier, raising kids, and regular excursions overseas makes it challenging to complete any project, which makes the ease of construction and quality Sonex puts into the kits so great.  Keep up the great work, and I look forward to breaking in my new plane!
