I completed my scratch-built Sonex on February 28, 2015. First flight was March 8, 2015. Sonex SN 1534 is a taildragger and equipped with an 80HP Aerovee engine, MGL Extreme EFIS, MGL V6 radio, Sandia mode C transponder, Ameriking AK451 ELT. It took 3 years and 1450 hours to scratch-build in my garden shed.
