Congratulations to Stirling Brandt of California, Maryland whose standard gear, AeroVee Turbo powered Waiex-B (S/N WXB0037) flew for the first time on June 30th! “I am thrilled to report my first flight was yesterday morning,” writes Stirling, “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!” Gold Wings are on the way!
