On Sunday, Dec 6, 2015 at 4:04 PM, Sonex SN 1153 took to the Carolina blue skys and all I can say is WHAT A RUSH! Plane and engine performed great. Transition training in October made the first flight less tense….well maybe a little less tense. Thanks to Joe Norris and Bob Helm for all of the coaching from the right seat during my training in Oshkosh. A big thanks to my wife for lending the sometimes needed additional hands and for stitching up the upholstery. A special thanks to Rick Basco, Onex #087, for all of his help along the way and his patience with my ENGINEERING ANALYSIS. To all the builders out there, keep going. It will probably take longer than you think but the effort is well worth it.

On 11-27-2015 Onex 114 took to the Tennessee blue sky. Inspection completed on Wednesday 11-25 by Nashville FSDO Aaron deVogel. Transition training in June was a tremendous confidence booster. Joe Norris and Bob Helm were great. Excellent group at the Sonex facility. Special thanks to Morrie Caudill (Onex 107) and Dudley Foster (Onex 54) for their technical and moral support. Beautiful morning in E. Tennessee for the first flight. Engine and plane performed flawlessly. No control surface adjustment required. Great kit, Great plane, Great Company.
