FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Sonex Aircraft to Hold 50th Builder Workshop!

December 7, 2011, Oshkosh, WI

Sonex Aircraft, LLC will achieve a significant milestone in 2012, holding its 50th Sonex Builder Workshop on the weekend of January 28-29! This milestone comes in the kit aircraft and engine company’s 14th year of business, holding 3 to 4 workshop events per year since 1998.

The Sonex Workshop, held at the Sonex factory in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, gives current and prospective builders the opportunity to meet the Sonex staff, learn about the history of the Sonex design and its philosophy, and learn all of the ins and outs of Sonex construction. Builders gain confidence in their abilities as they build a sample piece of the Sonex wing to take home with them. The Sonex Aircraft Workshop has proven to be an extremely valuable experience for our builders, saving them time, money and answering many frequently asked questions in the building process. Sonex Aircraft believes so strongly in the value of these Workshops that significant kit discount incentives are offered to those who attend.

Winter, 2012 Workshop participants will receive a special treat: an opportunity to attend the EAA Chapter 252 annual banquet, held in the awe-inspiring EAA AirVenture Museum Eagle Hangar facility. Dining in the Eagle Hangar among legendary warbirds is a privilege usually reserved for EAA board members or other VIP guests! Guest Speaker for this year's Chapter 252 banquet will be none other than Sonex Aircraft, LLC Founder and President John Monnett. The banquet will feature a catered buffet and silent auction.
