Sonex Builders & Pilots Foundation

Welcome to the Sonex Builders and Pilots Foundation

A message from Sonex Builders & Pilots Foundation: 
Greetings all fellow Sonex/Waiex/Xenos/Onex builders, owners, pilots and all those interested in experimental aircraft, sport aviation, and Sonex aircraft.

As you may be aware, the NTSB has been encouraging the experimental aircraft community to improve the safety record of amateur-built aircraft. Type Clubs have demonstrated to have been a significant factor in the overall improvement in first flight, flight testing, and continued operation of E/AB aircraft. 

This is the stated mission of the Sonex Builders and Pilots Foundation:

The purpose of this organization shall be to educate, promote the science of aircraft building, airmanship, navigation, and to organize and host forums for members, owners of aircraft, pilots, builders and the public to exchange methods, ideas, and techniques concerning flying and the operation, maintenance, characteristics
and history of Sonex Aircraft.

While we have received the blessing of Sonex Aircraft, LLC, this organization has no formal ties with Sonex Aircraft, LLC. All opinions and information contained within are the result of tech counselor, builder/pilot experiences or trusted sources.

Just to be clear, when we speak of Sonex, we are speaking about all Sonex types of aircraft and all those who currently or may in the future build, fly, own, or those who just admire Sonex aircraft.

Sonex enthusiasts - have you checked out the SonexFlight podcast? 

SonexFlight is a monthly podcast where we talk all things related to the Sonex line of kit-build aircraft. Each show we interview a different Sonex builder or pilot and discuss technical topics, tips and tricks, flying adventures, news and current events

Tools for loan

Mike Smith has put Time-Serts in his AeroVee spark plug holes. The tool cost around $160, but Mike is happy to loan it out. 
The inserts he used were: M12x1.25x17.5mm spark plug insert p/n 42125, from Amazon. But Mike says he may recommend the slightly shorter M12x1.25x15mm spark plug insert p/n 42123. Contact:  mike.smith208 at yahoo dot com
