This webpage is dedicated to our joint project of building a Sonex experimental aircraft.
We are four old friends who decided to start this project together. We bought a tail kit from another builder here in Norway in January 2012 and started
construction soon after. We decided that if we could get the tail section completed, the joint project was something we could complete.
Needless to say, we soon realized that there was no turning back. So, after getting our project application approved
by Norwegian Aviation Authority (project no 320), an order for the rest of the kit was placed, and a large box was delivered to our workshop in July 2012. Cristmas came early that year.
The aircraft is a small two seater constructed from a kit made
by Sonex Aircraft LLC. Check our links page to visit their homepage. LN-SNX will be configured as a tail dragger, with dual controls. Our engine of choice is the UL Power 350is. The design is aerobatic, +6/-3 G. However, we do not have an inverted fuel and
oil systems, so the aircraft will be limited to positive manouvers.
The serial number of our kit is 1571, meaning there are at least a corresponding number of kits sold as per summer 2012. The line of kits from Sonex LLC have grown in popularity,
and they are currently being built and flow world wide. In Norway there are, as far as we know, five other Sonex'es. They are however all in Ultralight category, ours will be the first built and registered in the Experimental/Amature Built category.
you can see a couple of good looking Sonex'es, the shiny one in the middle is basically what we have in mind as far as looks goes.
Feel free to roam our web page, we will update our build section with pictures from the construction as we progress.
