Overtighten Your Fuel Tank Fittings? Fix Them with Sonex Oops Fittings

Instead of replacing your entire fuel tank, you may replace the molded-in NPT fittings with Sonex Oops fittings, available in both 1/8 and 3/8 NPT, including full installation instructions.

To avoid causing this problem, be sure to read and follow the directions provided in your Fuel Tank Installation Instructions, which can be downloaded from our Instruction Sheets page.

EAA's Amateur-Built Aircraft Certification Kit
EAA now offers an Amateur-Built Aircraft Certification Kit, which is available for purchase online. The kit includes everything you need to register and certificate a new experimental amateur-built aircraft. The 15-page, step-by-step Certification Guide walks you through the entire process-from getting an N number to the aircraft inspection-and provides samples of how to complete each required form. The certification kit also includes all FAA forms, Experimental sticker (in black), dataplate, and a convenient placard decal sheet.

Pitot-Static Probe
Aircraft Spruce Pitot-Static Probe
While a complete pitot-static probe is detailed in the plans and can be built by the truly dedicated builder, Aircraft Spruce & Specialty offers a ready made probe which serves the needs of the Sonex Aircraft builder well. Their "L"-shaped probe, part number 15144, can be mounted on a small inspection plate and installed in the wing in the same location shown for the "plans-built' probe.

AveoFlash PowerBurst Lighting

3-in-1 Position/Nav/Strobe LED Lights
3-in-1 Position/Nav/Strobe AveoFlash PowerBurst LED lights from AveoEngineering are a fantastic value with great performance. Weighing just 2.116 ounces, the AveoFlash PowerBurst units require very simple wiring and no heavy power supply boxes! Integrated rear position lights eliminate the need to install a rear position light on the tail of the aircraft, providing an ideal solution for position lighting on the Y-Tail Waiex or Xenos aircraft. AveoFlash products are available through Wicks Aircraft Supply

Parts Required for typical Sonex/Waiex installation: 30' of 4 conductor 22 gauge wire (60' required for Xenos), Qty 2 "single-pole, single-throw" (SPST) switches.
