August 13, 2019 was first flight for our Waiex-B flown by Gary Ludeke. Performed seven successful takeoff and landings with no known issues. Very exciting to see the plane fly that my wife Lynn and I built together. Thank you for a wonderful airplane and for the wonderful experience that we only expect to get better.

Flew great. Needs more runway than I was accustomed to (Tony is a former Harrier pilot), but once airborne handles well and has superb visibility. I'm enjoying flying it.

It is my pleasure to advise that my just completed B model Sonex flew for the first time yesterday. The aircraft is a nosewheel configuration with a 100 hp Rotax 912 ULS fitted. The aircraft flew and landed beautifully (as was expected). I believe it is the first B model to fly in Australia. I would like to thank all those who contributed to the successful build both at Sonex and in Australia -the network works great and should not be underestimated! Looking forward to many more enjoyable flights.

After 6 1/2 years of scratch building and head scratching my Sonex flies like a dream. Taking off on a fine still morning at YGAW. Hands off straight and level and most importantly.just easy! I need to thank the other builders out there for the odd bit of help and advice and the fellow members of the SAAA in South Australia. I am still smiling.

Got my first flight on June 3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CVG_Mx61Ww&t=9s Went awesome. Got some great test pilot training from Robbin in Independence and the sonex pod cast "First Flight" was really helpful too. Just added power and went straight down the runway till it wanted to fly. Got a great 30-40 minute flight in to figure out slow flight characteristics then brought it back in for a great landing. Have to dial in the trim and see if I can suck more power out of the turbo now. Super exciting---haven't had that much adrenaline in forever! Special thanks to my Tech Counselor Ernie Moreno. He checked my plane 4 different times the last couple years free of charge driving 1.5 hours to my place! I had little aircraft knowledge so his details and insight were amazing.

Pleased to inform you that Sonex 1602 made it's first flight on 2nd May. Camit 3300, 24 litres of fuel and headwind of 5mph, left the ground in less than 150 yards. I was pleased with the relatively short field performance as the majority of strips in uk are grass and rarely more than 500 yards.

The plane functioned perfectly with minimal control inputs. All engine parameters were normal, pressure, temp, rpms, chts, egts, monitored with car gauges and Dynon's SV EMS. Engine check after flight showed not a drop of oil. Great plane. I'm looking forward to continuing the flight testing phase. 133 TAS 3000' 3100 rpm's without pants, aerovee 80 HP.
