On Friday December 2nd, N13MB flew for the very first time.With Bob O’Haver at the controls, he departed New London, Ct, (GON) at 7:45 am. The initial flight was just over 30 minutes. Bob conducted some stalls, and slow flight followed by a low approach over the field. Shortly after 9:30am, and a pre flight briefing, I jumped in for a 35 minute flight over the Long Island Sound. The plane flew flawlessly, and handled far greater than I could have expected. The handling characteristics were smooth. Landing the plane was much easier than I had anticipated. With power at 88% at 5500 feet, I was seeing speeds at 210MPH. What a fantastic machine. I wanted to take the opportunity to thank all of the folks at Sonex, with special mention to Kerry, Levi, and Joe. I’m grateful for your patience and support. I also want to thank Bob Carlton, Bill Hill, and Bob O’Haver for their wisdom and attention to detail during the LOA training In New Mexico. The training makes for a great transition into this aircraft. Finally, to the team in Groton, Chris Bergman, Tim Pavkov, and Gerry Sykes, you guys did an amazing job, I thank you for your guidance and amazing talent in making this a reality. I look forward to enjoying this aircraft for years to come. Best regards, Andrew San Marco

ONEX N110NX flew for the first time on November 21st at Lewisburg Ellington Airport (LUG) in middle TN. My support team included my wife and fellow builder Karen, son Andrew who flew top cover with fellow pilot Dan Ford, Tech Counselor John Deyeager, and friends Tom Kempfer and Julie Roberts. The plane flew great with only small tweaks to the engine. After getting a few more take offs and landings I flew her home to our grass strip at Hunter Field (06TN) where we live. Thanks to all that helped to make this dream come true.

With three jobs, two kids, a home remodel and addition, and approximately 10 years of construction, Waiex N790EF took flight on November 9 2016, just in time before the New England weather landed. N790EF, serial #79, and 0EF (in honor of Operation Enduring Freedom), is configured with an Aerovee 2.1 engine with a Rotec TBI. Initial flight of the aircraft was excellent, with only minor tweaks of the tuning and rigging required. Test flying continues with initial cruise reports of 125-135 mph at published fuel burn. Special thanks goes out to my good friend Dana Thurston, of Restofab.net, for painting and accomplishing the finishing touches on the plane. Frank Stephens who helped me build a spar that belongs in an art gallery. Kevin Johnson and Herald Fuller for lending a helping hand and professional guidance, and when two arms wasn't enough. I would like to also thank my wife for tolerating my desire to build a aircraft, partly in my basement. And to all my friends who gave me support and the encouragement to continue the build.

Sonex 1578 flew for the first time yesterday and received AC on 10-14-16. I went up and done small turns and pitch control then proceed higher to do slow flight and pre stall check. I kept the flight to about 30 minutes with a pretty decent landing. The planes flights very well, it is light on the stick. I plan on going over it well before my next flight. It took me just over 4 years to build. I used the Hummel 2400 VW for the engine and Prince carbon fiber P Tip prop. I would like to thank my wife Janet, my Friends that helped Jared and Herbie for that needed helping hand. I also need to thank Harold Reynolds who is building a Sonex and gave me very needed guidance. Thanks again to Sonex and all for helping me get this project in the air.

On September the 14th, (Birthday Gift) my four and a half year project Sonex SN# 773 (N773SX) took to the air. This was the second plane I built with the first one being a Waiex SN# 38 which I flew for 414 hours in about 5 years. The project was worth every minute and as for the joy and thrill of the first flight, absolutely amazing. I flew for 34 minutes in the pattern and then landed. To those of you out there still building and looking for motivation to complete your projects, trust me when I say, get on with it, it is worth every minute of the build when you make that first flight. Make it happen folks, make it happen. To John Monnett and his great staff - not much I can add to what they have accomplished. Thank you Sonex. To my wife, I see the honey do list on the refrigerator door has grown substantially over the last 4.5 years, if you stop buying me Sonex kits to build I promise I will get to your list. Seriously, thanks for all your help and support.
