After 2 years, 5 months and 7 days on the 7th of October 2017, Waiex #208 flew for the first time. The first flight was fairly uneventful, waited the whole day for the weather to clear up after major storms and rains over the whole country. A strong cross wind, gusting up to 30 mph on the main runway did not make it any easier. But after several high speed taxi runs and a bit of tuning on the rudder-vator it took to the sky late afternoon. Can report that the elevator is fairly sensitive and the aircraft is rolling to the left. But a bit of setup modifications and trimming will solve the problem. The Jabiru 330 performs very well and has more than enough power. Would like to thanks Cliff Lotter, Adriaan Classen, Aubri de Wet and Hannes Vorster for their support and encouragement. Even more so, my wife, Dorette and the girls, Nadia and Lene, for the patience and support through some frustrating but also pleasant times during the build. Thanks for all the help from the Sonex team. Really appreciated. Now let's go fly!

Building started on 1 January 2014 and ZU-IHC took to the air on 26 August 2017 The first flight was uneventful and the aircraft performed great. one turn up-trim was dialed in to cruise. She is easy to fly and land. I would like to thank my mentors Dudley Foster and Jonathan Low for always being there to advise, support and encourage me. Morrie, Stan and Conrad thanks for your assistance and tips. WOW WHAT A RUSH

I am unable to fly it myself so I have a friend test flying it for me and it runs cool and flies hands off at 145 MPH and has 7.4 hrs on it at this time. It has been flown up to 185 MPH and flies very nice. This is my second airplane using the Jabiru engine. My last one was a Avid Flyer with a four cylinder Jabiru.

I am very pleased to announce that my scratch built Sonex, s/n 1510 flew this morning, 7-20-2017 at 0730 to 0800 hrs at Finney Field, near Howe, and Sherman, Texas Field length is 2700 grass 180/360. Conditions were temp 79 deg, winds 7mph at 170. Initial lift off was spectacular! 'Sirpeedee" is N502PD, conventional gear, dual stick, lowered seat,center controls, and is currently unpainted. the AeroVee 2.1 engine performed flawlessly with takeoff rpm over 3000. CHTs were all less that 350 deg, EGTs were all less that 1100. I did not lean to increase temps because of it being first flight. Oil pressure remained at 65 psi, oil temp remained less that 200 deg for the 1/2 hour flight.The total engine time is 2.5 hrs, that includes ground testing. Both takeoff and landing were described by my ground crew of Clint Murphy, Bob Demunck, Steve Rief, and Jimmy Finney as Non events! Thanks guys!!! It is a great honor to finally understand that this very nimble aircraft is going to be so much fun to get to know better, and I too, now have 'Big Johns" Sonex grin as shown so often in the adds!!

Flew my Onex (SN0153) on Father's Day weekend with my Dad (and building assistant) in attendance. Got off the ground rather quickly and made a lap around the pattern to check some basics. Now time to tweak and work off the Phase I and collect flying data! Thanks to all who have touched my build in one way or another. For those on the fence, come on in.the adventure is fine!
