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.

On 3/30/2016 Sonex 1462 aka N462SX aka Favorite Lady completed her first flight. She is named after my Father-In-Law's WWII B-17. I received my Kit on 11/11/2010. It has been a fantastic journey building her. I really appreciate all the help from the Sonex staff. Thanks to all of you! Favorite Lady handled exactly as I expected. Thank you Joe Norris. I felt completely prepared for the flight even though it was a while since I completed my T-Flight training. The flight was really awesome. The Sonex aircraft is a true joy to fly. No surprises. I am looking forward to completing the flight testing phase. I have posted a video edited to just the takeoff and landing on YouTube. https://youtu.be/fqzF6Httr4E

Just wanted to say a special thanks for making it all happen, and getting me over the hurdles faced on the way. It was greatly appreciated and helped more than I can say during the build.

The aircraft performed flawlessly! It was such an incredible feeling to lift off for the first time after all the hours of seeing the plane in the build stages. The weather was beautiful and the Aerovee Turbo performance was so strong! The transition training at Sonex made my first flight so comfortable. The Sonex team and Sonex community are an incredible group of people and I look forward to many great years of flying along side everyone! See you at Oshkosh '16.
