I would like to thank all the people who helped make this happen. First and foremost my wife Lori for putting up with this crazy hobby and allowing me to achieve a dream. I also want to thank my dad for all the hours he spent out in the garage building this plane with me and providing encouragement. It really was a family project. There was also the Northeast gang of Mike Smith, Howard Linker and Glenn Hunt whose e-mails, phone calls and visits kept this project moving at times that I was ready to give it all up and throw in the towel. There is nothing like seeing and talking to other builders to keep you motivated. My CFI and prior Sonex owner Jeff Erekson who got me back into flying after many years off while building and the Sonex Transition Training team who got me confident enough to do the first flight safely. Those few hours I spent with doing the transition training were the best money I spent on the whole project. Finally I would like to thank Sonex for designing such an awesome and affordable airplane.

Did it! Wow, what a rush - and THAT'S an understatement. Nothing like a first flight in an airplane that you built from a kit to get the adrenaline pumping! Thanks guys - and gals - for the wonderful experience of building the Onex. I rushed the first flight trying to beat out some approaching storms - yeah, not too smart - but the 1/2 hour in the air was fantastic. Control response was unbelievable.and that little engine I put together from the bunch of parts you sent me, ran great. I proved out the landing gear strength during the landing, sorry Joe, you tried.I just HAD to give it a bit more back pressure during the flair. (I'm blaming it on the stiff crosswind, and I'm good with that excuse. Ha!) Kit delivery was on 5-17-2012, first flight on 10-11-2014. Thanks again! Rick

After 3 years and 10 month building, last Thursday 9 of October 2014 my Sonex #1430 registration 19-8464 flew for the first time by Steve Nelson as test Pilot. The Aerovee 2.1 Perform well but the flight have to be shorted due to a low pressure alarm about 7 minutes into the flight. Steve did an excellent job in landing it safely. Steve said the plane flies very well with light controls. Thanks to Sonex especially Kerry Fores for their support over the years and for their excellent Aircraft design. I enjoyed the building process very much. I would like to thank my wife Ans for her support. In addition to that, I would like to thank the SonexAus group, The Sport Aircraft Club of South Australia and the Aldinga Aero Club for their support. I also like to thank Bob Meyers for his very good Sonex Building Log on the webside.

Sonex 1288 (N779SX) flew very comfortably and predictable. It was an enjoyable build and a serious flying machine that I plan to enjoy for many years to come. Many thanks to the whole Sonex family for the practical design and support. Transition training with Joe was just what I needed to begin the test flights myself. This has truly been an educational and recreational journey. Sonex Experimental 779SX proudly wears the Sonex “Reality Check”. Thank you so much. See you at Airventure

After a relatively long gestation of 8 years 2 months and 28 days, (but who's counting?) Sonex #813 finally took flight at 3:30 pm into a blustery but sunny afternoon at Callington Airstrip, South Australia on October 4, 2014. We were airborne for 30 minutes with 3 circuits before a full stop and taxi back to the hangar. Everything went well with engine and airframe. Thanks to Sonex for a great design and for the support over the years building. Also thanks to the great support from the Downunder SonexAus crew, Lynn Jarvis, Peter Anson, Doug McLean, Stuart Trist, Greg Jones and others whom I may have forgotten. It may have taken a long time and at times I never thought I'd get there, but with persistance and the support of a great Community of Sonex people, I did! Woohoo!

Waiex #149 had its first flight on Sunday 22nd September at YLTV. Construction which took just over four years has been a great experience and very character building. I would like to thank everybody who helped along the way in particular Janet, my patient wife, Chris Bishoff (Sonex 1147) a very generous man and Sonex. My little southern star (Epsilon Crucis) flew straight and true. You can only know how that feels if you have been there, right?

Sonex 1072, an Aerovee powered tricycle gear flew for the first time today. The plane flew fantastic. It handled just like the factory prototype I flew during the Sonex Transition Flight Training. The plane flew out of Fulton County Airport in Atlanta. My EAA Flight Advisor flew chase in an RV4. My wife, Courtney provided ground support. After the first flight I adjusted the timing and took her up for a longer flight. Thank you Sonex for a fabulous aircraft design, kit package and top notch factory support.

I completed my Sonex project and flew it for the first time on July 23, 2014 after almost four years of building time. It has a Jabiru 3300 engine driving a Sensenich propeller. It has wonderful handling characterists and the performance I expected. The panel is just fitted with  a Stratomaster electronic flight instrument system and portables : Aera 500, Fligthcom intercom and Icom radio. Thanks to all the people at Sonex and many thanks to my wife and kids for their patience and support.

Jabiru 3300 powered Tri-Gear WAIEX S/N 0163 Flew for a 20 minute initial flight on July 13, 2014 at Dutchess County Airport (POU) in NY. Very exciting. T-Flight Training with Joe Norris was extremely valuable - I highly recommend it. Now I'm looking forward to lots of fun with those aerobatic ailerons. After about three years of e-mails and phone calls, Kerry can now take a break. Seriously, the tech support was great. Thanks a lot. Don King
