All went according to plan Test pilot Col Crittenden took her for a 20 minute initial test flight. Plane flew straight and level hands off. Followed by a further 5 flights with me at the controls not so straight or level All engine temps, pressures. stayed good, & she's †ready for the next level. I need a bit more dual time before cutting loose. Happy day ! :-)

I'm writing to report the first flight of Onex #0140 yesterday, Memorial Day 2015. Thanks for a quality kit and nice flying design. I chose the conventional gear version and built the AeroVee 2.1 with 7 to 1 compression. Can't decide if I like my rather gaudy paint scheme or am embarrassed of it, but do know checkerboards are lots of work! There's lots to love about my previous two projects (finished Glasair more than 20 years ago), but for now at least, the Onex is my favorite. At age 76 I wouldn't expect to be your oldest builder, but probably well over the average age!

On May 21, 2015 my Xenos #38 received it's airworthy inspection. The Xenos has been both a delight to fly and flight test. I have been pleasantly surprised in that it continues to exceed my expectations. We have had excellent soaring conditions and have recorded a 1,000 ft/min thermal while at idle power. The Xenos is proving to be a very low priced motorglider with reasonable soaring capabilities. My only regret is the building process is over.

Waiex #11 made its first flight on Monday April 13th at Oakdale Airport (O27). I would like to thank all the Sonex personnel for their help and advise. I want to especially thank Joe Norris and the T-Flight program, it made the first flight a non-event. The aircraft flew and handled extremely well. Kudos to Sonex!

Scratch building. Tail done, Wing ribs and spar material done (have not got the caps yet). Aft fuselage done except T-Deck. Fwd fuselage sides cut. T-Deck done now, Fwd fuselage attached. Polishing as I go. More work gets done in the winter time. Went with the nose gear because I was able to pick up the main gear at a discount. Also this will keep insurance easier. Buttoning up the wings as soon as I finish polishing the skins. After that can rig them. 12/15/2014 - Moved to airport (GPH). Installed wings. Final details and rigging in progress. Estimated completion on 02/01/2015 Received airworthiness inspection on 4/11/2015, and first flight was the next morning when winds were calm. First flight was conducted by Shannon Knee and he said other than a left wing heaviness which disappeared when the flaps were deployed, and the need for a rudder trim tab, the aircraft performed without an issues. After 11 1/2 years of building from plans with 2 job changes and 2 moves, it was thrilling to see it take to the air. When my father was alive he always wanted to build a plane, so this first flight was dedicated to him.
