The 33rd Sonex Aircraft Builder Workshop was held October 7-8, and was filled to capacity with well-over 70 attendees and guests! We once again enjoyed great weather for this workshop, allowing factory prototypes and customer-built aircraft to make fly-bys on both days. Special thanks goes-out to Sonex Aircraft builders Wayne Daniels and Drew Waterworth for bringing their aircraft and making fly-bys. On Saturday evening, Joe Norris from EAA’s Aviation Services department spoke to attendees about registering experimental/amateur-built aircraft with the FAA, issues relating to the Sport Pilot rule, as well as the rules governing self-launched gliders like the Xenos. Bob Mackey of Falcon Insurance, managers of the EAA Aircraft Insurance Plan, was also on-hand to talk about insuring homebuilt aircraft. The next workshop is scheduled for February 3-4, 2007. Space is limited, sign-up today!
