Sonex Flies in the United Kingdom!
12-22-06

Sonex Aircraft, LLC is pleased to announce that we have awarded dealership status to Silver Fern Microlights, Ltd. in the United Kingdom.

Sonex SN 887, a Jabiru 3300 powered, Tri-Gear, Dual Stick Sonex built by Mike Moulai of Silver Fern Microlights, made its first flight on December 16. The aircraft will begin its PFA flight test period and PFA approval of the design is expected in the Summer of 2007.

Popular Flying Association (PFA) approval of a sport aircraft design is prerequisite to UK Civil Aviation Authority aircraft registration. Silver Fern Microlights has made a significant investment toward securing PFA approval of Sonex designs which will allow other UK pilots to build and fly this popular homebuilt aircraft.

All orders from UK customers may be directed to Silver Fern Microlights. Sales and Informational inquiries, as well as Technical Support inquiries may still be made directly to Sonex Aircraft, LLC.

Sonex Opens New Warehouse Facility
12-19-06

Sonex Aircraft, LLC has completed the transition to a new Warehouse facility. The building was originally constructed in late 2004 and used as a storage hangar until heated and insulated this Fall, creating a new 5,400 sq ft Warehouse facility to receive, store, pack and ship parts for the Sonex, Waiex, Xenos and AeroConversions products. The former warehouse has been transformed into a new Flight Center (pictured bottom, right), to house our fleet of flying aircraft and free-up workspace in the adjacent Research & Development hangar. These new Warehouse and Flight Center facilities will help Sonex Aircraft, LLC more efficiently and economically serve our customers while providing the space required to accomodate the pace of growth for the Sonex Aircraft and AeroConversions marketplace.
