Robert Barber: Northward Ho! Alaska and Back in a Plansbuilt Sonex

Who says the Sonex is not a cross-country machine? Sonex Builder Robert Barber (S/N 271) sure doesn’t, as he flew his Jabiru 3300 powered Sonex from his home in Bryan, TX to Alaska and back! The tale of his journey can be found in an article Robert wrote for the April, 2014 issue of Kitplanes Magazine. “Northward Ho! Alaska and Back in a Plansbuilt Sonex,” (1.7mb PDF file) is an 11-page cover feature detailing his journey, along with impressive photographs of the beautiful Alaska mountainscape taken along the way. In addition to the download link above, the article can also be accessed from the Kitplanes web site.
