Reporting Completions

Finished Your Sonex? Tell the Whole World!

Have you just completed and flown your Sonex Aircraft for the first time? Congratulations are in order! Be sure to report this achievement to Sonex in order to receive your Sonex Gold Wings pin and to be listed as a completion in the Sonex Builder Database. Timely reporting of your completion will also earn you recognition on the Sonex Aircraft home page. Note that Sonex, LLC only recognizes aircraft that have been flown as "completions."
