Congratulations to Gary Briggs of Manukau, New Zealand whose Rotax 912 ULS powered Standard Gear Sonex (S/N 1531) flew for the first time on August 24th! "David Wilkinson took my plans built Sonex for it’s first flight and says it’s a ‘pocket rocket’," writes Gary. "It flew Hands off and with no trim required. Thanks to Sonex Aircraft for a great design. Now I just need a rating then I can also have some fun." Gold Wings are on the way to Gary!
