My official first flight date was 11-19-20, thirteen years after I started building. Why did it take so long? After the first year building, I had completed the wings, tail and fuselage. I figured I would be flying the airplane soon. I hadn't flown in 17 years so I began flying to get current. Then I had to have an instrument rating, followed by a single/multi commercial, a CFI and then began flying CRJs for a regional airline. I spent too much time flying and not enough time building. Thanks to all the wonderful people with Sonex. Thanks to Charlie Steffey who taught me to fly his wonderful Waiex, and thanks to my beautiful wife Jamie who encouraged me from day one.

Today I joined a very exclusive club when I took my SubSonex for its first fly. Yesterday I got my Phase 1 C of A and so there were no excuses not to fly it. All went well. Took it up to 5000 and did a few stalls, steep turns etc. Landing was uneventlul and I did remember to put my undercarriage down! Looking forward to lots more flying.

First flight of Sonex C-IGMW was at CYLW, on 15 Oct 2020 with test pilot Bill Bryan at the controls. Very successful flight, very responsive and lots of power from the aerovee turbo. Thanks to Bill and the team at Sonex for the all help.

Waiex Ser. No. 212 chewed through it's leash on October 12, 2020. Much to the delight of the builder/owner/pilot, the wings stayed on and the engine continued to make noise (a lot of noise) till the end of the ride. There are some slight trim issues to be addressed, but no major systems or structures need to be removed or refitted. I'd like to thank both Bryan Cotton and Ryan Roth for their contribution in pictures and description on the Sonex Builder's website and personal build log. It was a great help having those resources available through the "tough" times. The conventional geared, Aerovee(ish) powered, dual stick machine came together in 4 years, 8 months, and 6 days. I'm anxious to get started on my next project. I'm thinking a pot-holder made of popsicle sticks.

After 6 long years Onex 0162 (19-1665) took to the air today - 6 Oct 20 at Warwick airfield in Southeast Queensland, Australia. We spent 1.3 hours aloft in the circuit area just getting a feel for the slippery little beast and giving the engine a good run as per the manual. She didn't miss a beat and improved noticeably over the flight. Thanks to the forbearance and encouragement of my wife Marjorie and occasional help from Kerry [Sonex Tech Support] the project nears completion. Now to complete the flight test program and have some fun.

JSX0024, N1007B flew today for the first time out of Clarke County Airport in Southern Indiana! Two flights and two smooth but somewhat lengthy landings 😊. Aside from a couple of aural warnings that need to be adjusted, it flew fantastic!

Onex #170 had its first flight this Friday. The Aerovee engine and Onex airframe fly great and control feel is quick and responsive. It's my first build and test flight, I enjoyed building it and everything finally went as planned. Thanks to everyone at Sonex, especially Kerry for the support when I needed it and Onex/Xenos builder Michael Jackson for his help and advice, and many others whose advice made the first flight a success.
