Congratulations to Richard Ewing of Perth, Western Australia whose AeroVee powered Tri-Gear Sonex (S/N 1586) flew for the first time on June 26th! “I’m very impressed with the way the aircraft flies,” writes Richard. “It has very good manners on the ground, has very nicely harmonised controls and gave me no concerns during the flight. I have had some five years of building the Sonex and have enjoyed most of the process. The support, from my Technical councillors from The Sport Aircraft Association of Australia and from Kerry at Sonex, has smoothed over the occasional areas where assistance was required. Over the past few years I have read many posts on Facebook, marking the successful conclusion of Sonex builders all over the globe. I am happy to have joined their ranks. Thank you for a great aeroplane.” Thank You Richard, and Gold Wings are on the way!
