On Sunday, July 10, 2016, at 7:25 AM, Sonex S/N 1359 flew for the first time after 5 ½ 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

I got to be the test pilot for the first flight of my wife’s Sonex tri-gear that she built (under my watchful eye of course :). Being a retired math teacher, and downright meticulous to building details, her precision shows by the way the airplane flies, stable as if it were on rails! Many thanks go out to Joe and Tom with the Sonex Factory T-Flight training program. The transitional training made the first flight such a joy. If anyone is trying to decide whether or not to spend the money to do the T-Flight my advice is to do it. It will be the best money you will spend to get your new airplane into the air safely while minimizing first-flight stress.
