Welcome to my Alaska Sonex site.

Okay, it's been awhile. I had to take a few years off secondary to several spine surgeries, a major house remodel/rebuild, pain, and then time to recover. Kind of lost my desire to build for a while but, seems like I'm back now. I really am on the home stretch and might be done by the end of summer, 2017. Thinking happy thoughts!

*******************************************

I’ve chosen the Sonex for a number of reasons, primarily because it is an exciting and capable little airplane. Secondly, the economics of building a Sonex when compared with many other experimental aircraft are very attractive. Finally, the Sonex is a reasonable build which I, with my non-professional skill level, can safely complete.

A Sonex is not exactly what one would consider a conventional Alaskan aircraft (there is only one Waiex in the state and no Sonex). Regardless, it will be a great recreational tool for me and my family. Perhaps my next build will be that STOL cub-like aircraft everyone thinks I should be building. For now, however, I'll just be excited about what I'm building and dream about the day I actually get her finished and in the air.



Oh, because everyone else seems to think it prudent to note this on their own sites, I should add that the information contained here is my own. Sonex, LLC had nothing to do with it. These are my ideas and experiences. I have no formal mechanical training and am an utter amateur. Lucky to be able tie my own shoes actually. If you do anything I might suggest then you do so at your own risk.
