Sonex Builders & Pilots Foundation

Builder's Pages

The foundation's intent is to make available to the Sonex community as much technical information as possible. This includes an updated list of links to builder's web sites, especially those with technical details, clarifications to the building process that are the result of real-world experience, and suggestions for techniques and/or methods useful when constructing a Sonex aircraft.
