Onex Sport Aircraft Receives FAA NKET Approval

Sonex Aircraft LLC has announced that the FAA's National Kit Evaluation Team (NKET) has approved and published amateur building checklists for the company's Onex single-place, folding-wing kit aircraft. These approved checklists will allow current and future Onex builders to show compliance with the FAA's 51% rule. NKET checklist participation also opens the opportunity for Onex builders to legally obtain commercial assistance for their projects.

Sonex is also introducing Onex upholstery packages and Onex-specific installation provisions for the AeroConversions AeroVee engine.

According to the company, the Onex was designed to offer Sport Pilots an economical way to build and fly. The folding-wing design allows the airplane to fit into a garage or share hangar space. The wing panels can also be removed for trailering.
