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

http://www.mykitlog.com/mikesmith/ On Saturday, June 21, 2014, Sonex N439M made it's first flight from the 6B6 Minuteman airport in Stow, MA. The AeroVee powered, standard gear, plans-built aircraft flew perfectly during it's 20 minute flight. The 5 hours of time Mike received in a factory Sonex was extremely helpful in making the take-off, flight and landing a predictable affair. Thanks to all my friends who helped over the last five years, and especially to my wife Gail for her continuous support. A first flight video is here: http://youtu.be/sOp9UugkzC0 Everyone took video, and no stills, of the flight, so the best picture I have is a frame capture from the video.The other picture is a very happy me after landing.

I like to proudly announce, that on June 7th, I made first flight on Waiex 111. Flight took place in Lesce-Bled airfield in Slovenia. It lasted 15 minutes.Everything went well. Aircraft is very sensitive on controls, and with Jabiru 3300, climbs like a rocket. I must say thank you to many friends (whoom I never met), previous builders of Sonex Aircraft, who well documented their building process on the net. Jure Lokovsek (EAA509100)

After numerous delays due to starting a new career and the poor Wisconsin weather this spring, the weather finally cooperated and I made the first flight of Serial #1145 on the evening of Sunday, May 18th with my wife Brenda, son Brandon and daughter Autumn witnessing the event! Although I still have fine tuning to do on the motor, the airframe handled great! I can't wait to fly the 40hrs off and share the experience with my family and friends!

Flight: It was a cool and cloudy day with winds out of the north at 3mph. 509 and I rolled out on the runway, the power came up and away we went. The Sonex picked picked up speed quickly and jumped right off the ground with just a slight bank to the left. I got it straightened up and up we went. I am a low time private pilot with only 80 hrs under my belt in a 172 and have flown a couple of Sonex’s prior to the first flight of Sonex 509, Bruce Harrington’s #321 out of Roseburg Oregon and Bill McWhorter #1486 out of Eugene Oregon let me fly his Sonex two different times. Thanks goes out to both of those guys. Thanks also goes out to all the guys on sonextalk that helped me out with first flight information. My Sonex flew great and was very easy to fly although a bit touchy on the control which I am sure I will get use to as I fly off the hours A special thanks goes out to my wife Jackie for all of her support while building the Sonex, spending hundreds of hours in the shop and even more hours down at the airport getting ready for the first flight. She was just excited as I was about the first flight and to Kerry at Sonex Aircraft for answering all the questions I had for him.
