I am thrilled to report my first flight was yesterday morning, June 30th. My B Model Waiex (N371WB and serial no. WXB0037) is a tailwheel configuration, with aerobatic ailerons, and powered by an AeroVee Turbo. The plane handled extremely well, and was a real pleasure to fly. I'd like to thank the whole team at Sonex and the builder community for all the help and support. I am excited for more flying, and hope to see everyone next year at Oshkosh!

My Aerovee powered Sonex s/n 1353 fly for the first time on JUNE 24, 2020. Test pilot Jake Logan stayed aloft and ran 3000+ rpm. Jake stated the plane flew great and all temps were in the green. I will complete transition training before my first flight, and I can hardly wait. Many thanks to my wife and family for thier love and support, to Jake and Jeff Logan whose experience and knowledge and skill pushed me across the finish line. Thanks to Sonex and staff for technical assistance and for offering a low cost high quality kit plane, and most of all to our saviour Jesus Christ, for all the blessings in my life.

Hi Guys, Just dropping you a note to let you know that Onex #89 made its maiden flight yesterday. It was an awesome, intense, and once in a lifetime experience. This is my third build. Years ago I built an RV-6A and then a Sonex. But, this is the first time I made the initial flight myself. Since most of my flights consist of local "just for fun" flights, which airplane to build for my first retirement project was a no brainer. Once the Onex and the pilot are dialed in this thing is going to be a blast! Thanks for all the timely support and spare parts needed to get this project to first flight. Blue Skies, Wes

I made my first flight 4/11/20 and stayed aloft 1.2 hours. Aerovee 80 ran flawless and I got my 1+ hours at 3000+ RPM as recommended in the Aerovee manual. Aircraft flew great. Flight controls were a bit sensitive but within 15 minutes and my anxiety calming down all went well. In my early days I built an RV 4 and had several hundred hours in it so there were a lot of similarities to the Onex.Ya'll have nice kits and great support.Thanks Kerry for your help on the few issues I needed help with.

After a little over 2 1/2 years, our plane is finally up in the air! It was a great feeling to be able to take off for the first time in a plane that the family built!
