Congratulations to Phil Duff of Joliet, Illinois, whose AeroVee powered, Std-Gear Sonex (S/N 535) flew for the first time on April 22. “I am very impressed with the overall handling and performance of the aircraft,” writes Phil. “In particular, I found the takeoff and landing characteristics of this taildragger very easy to get used to. I owe a great deal of thanks to Rich Kosi, my tech counselor, for all his help and encouragement throughout my project.” Kosi built Sonex #659, which flew in September, 2005. Gold wings are on the way to Phil!
