Received my confirmation letter via email today and it looks like no one ahead of me opted out of an Onex polsition . Glad to see that so many are continuing on with the build. Being #28 gives me a projected delivery date the week of August 29. My delivery will be a pick up however. Looking forward to joining the Sonex builders group, sharing build experiences and joining up at future fly ins.

Received my confirmation email today. Looks like quite a few of the later reservation holders did back out. I jumped from reservation #89 to Plans#0059, moving my expected shipment date up 5 weeks to mid November.

You can't start too soon. Today I ordered wing tip strobe mounts as the first item for my Onex. I plan on using the Aveo Powerburst lights.

Vertical and Rudder done , working on the flaps.

This is a very easy build,especially with the premade parts and match hole construction.

I received my kit exactly two weeks ago today. I and others have found mistakes in the drawings.



Pics or it never happened. ;)

I needed additional storage space in the garage for Onex parts plus other AL I have on hand. This addition allows for 62 sq. ft. of space but is limited to 16 inch height if I wanted to ever open the 3rd stall door. You could do this with an opener present but you height would be reduced.

Here is where I stand 10 days after kit reception. The tail and horizontal stabs are pretty much completed (except for the skins installation) and I have started the ailerons, rudder and elevators. I am still debating which way to go as far as Basic ultralight versus Amateur built, in Canada we have both choices available. If I opt for amateur built, I will need to have the parts inspected before covering. Anyhow, I will have time to decide later.

I have included some pictures to show my progress. Since I am a first time builder, it took me some time to properly install my work area. The drawings are complete but sometimes confusing in terms of referencing the assembly of some detail part (a BOM would help). I am wondering why some tail bented parts were not done as part of the machined angle option? Don't forget to plan for either a vise or other means of bending equipment. I guess that in order to meet the 51%, we have to do some work and it is OK by me. I have 35 hrs invested up to now.

I really appreciate Sonex's response to my questions (thank you Kerry). For my first experience, I am having a ball!

Great work Rheal and thank you for posting the pictures. For those of us still waiting to hold parts in our hands it is a real treat to see how things go together. Please keep the updates and photos coming.
