I bought this as a nearly complete kit, but put 800 hours into changes/repairs prior to FAA approval. Wonderful airplane, now with 109 hours in less than 8 months. Most fun flying I have ever had. I had some issues with some parts that should not have been used in the Corvair engine, but after they were replaced the engine is perfect. Thanks John Monnett and team. I recently flew it to Altanta and back (220 statute miles) at a gross takeoff weight of 1308 lbs (my wife and I and full standard fuel and full Aux wing fuel of 11 gal). We made the entire trip with 9 gallons left burning 5.8 gal/hr, 145 mph TAS at 5500 ft. The Corvair ran like a sewing machine!

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