Did You Know? Cool Facts About Sonex
  • Sonex founder and president John Monnett is the designer of the Sonerai Formula Vee racer from the early 1970’s, as well as the Monerai sailplane, Moni motorglider, and the world-record holding Monex racer.
  • In addition to the Onex single-place aircraft’s folding-wing feature, the rest of the Sonex fleet of designs feature easily removable wings…just like a glider!
  • Sonex Aircraft includes comprehensive step-by-step installation manuals for factory-approved engine installations, leaving no detail to chance.
  • In addition to manufacturing airframe kits, Sonex Aircraft also produces the AeroConversions line of products, featuring the 80hp AeroVee Engine Kit and the widely-popular AeroInjector throttle body injector.
  • The AeroVee has been installed in many different homebuilt airframe designs and the AeroInjector can run on any 4-stroke engine between 30 and 125 horsepower.
  • The AeroInjector does not require the installation of carb heat. It’s design makes it impervious to icing. Sonex aircraft and other designs have been flying with AeroInjectors for years with no carb heat, and no problems.
  • The Sonex, Waiex and Onex aircraft models are all available in either Tail Wheel or Tri-Gear configurations.

  • All models of Sonex Aircraft (other than the SubSonex) with all supported engine options, are all Sport Pilot Legal aircraft.
  • Sonex Aircraft’s fastest model (other than the SubSonex) can cruise at 170 mph TAS @ 8,000 feet, yet is still a Sport Pilot legal aircraft. The most popular model, an AeroVee powered Sonex, can cruise at 150 mph TAS @ 8,000 feet.
  • All models of Sonex Aircraft are aerobatic, approved to +6 and -3 G’s with wide safety margins built-in: Sonex Aircraft are some of the strongest aircraft in the kit built market today, pound for pound.
  • Sonex Aircraft are great on grass strips, and many Sonex Aircraft owners base their planes out of grass fields 100 percent of the time.
  • You could by a $100,000 LSA, or you could build a Sonex Aircraft and $buy about 16,500 gallons of 100LL avgas, giving you enough fuel to fly with for the next 47 years or to circumnavigate the globe 28.5 times.
  • Sonex Aircraft kits now feature a large number of matched holes, allowing you to cleco assemblies together right out of the box!
