Sonex Builders & Pilots Foundation


Sonex Aircraft LLC describes the Waiex as follows:

WAIEX (pronounced "Y-X") is simply a Y-tail Sonex. Built purely for it's good looks and as an homage to earlier John Monnett designs such as the Moni and Monex Racer, the Waiex specifications and performance numbers are identical to those of the Sonex and, like the Sonex, is perfectly suited to the new US Sport Pilot/LSA regulations. The Waiex retains the same superb Sonex flight characteristics and high performance in all phases of flight, including aerobatics. 

If you're looking for the ultimate high-performance recreational aircraft with maximum ramp-appeal, the Waiex is for you.
