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.

Plans #028 (yes 28) Sonex, Aerovee, tailwheel, first flight 7/18/2020 at KSLR Sulphur Springs Tx, builder/owner Timothy Smith. AW inspection was passed on 24 May 2020, and first flight at the crack of dawn on 18 July 2020, by the owner/builder/Test Pilot. Landed safely with very few squawks. Plans were purchased on 5 March 2000, as well as a pallet of aluminum, and started cutting metal in May. The airplane scratch building process looks daunting, but its like eating an elephant, just one bite at a time.

Only 20 months after kit shipment, I did my first flight out of KLAF on July 11. The aircraft was absolutely stable, and only a few minor issues - slight left roll, and high oil temps on the UL Power 260iS engine. Both are easy fixes, and looking forward to many more flights!

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!

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

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.
