Sonex Aircraft, LLC is excited to announce the addition of new pre-fabricated parts to its popular Sonex and Waiex kit models, making the airframe easier and faster to build than ever before. Pioneered by the recently-introduced Onex Single-Place Aircraft Kit, Sonex and Waiex Complete Airframe Kits and Sub-Kits now feature Matched-Hole Formed Parts.
Adding over 100 new parts to each model's kit package, the Matched-Hole Formed Parts kit consists of channels, angles and clips that would traditionally have been made by the builder from pre-formed sheet aluminum blanks provided in earlier Sonex Aircraft kits. With matched pilot holes provided, these new kit parts not only reduce fabrication work for the builder, they also reduce build time and increase build accuracy by cleco'ing to existing kit parts right out of the box. Builders can further decrease build time with the addition of the optional Machined Angle Component kit upgrade, making tail, fuselage and portions of the wing assembly fit together in almost no time.
The Matched-Hole Formed Parts Kit will become a standard feature in all new Sonex and Waiex kits, with parts availability beginning in September of this year. Existing builders will also have the opportunity to upgrade their kits with the separate purchase of the Matched-Hole Formed Parts Kit, or by purchasing individual parts from the kit as needed. Full details can be found at the Sonex Aircraft booth display at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2012:
