SonexFlight is a monthly podcast where we talk all things related to the Sonex line of kit-build aircraft. Each show we interview a different Sonex builder or pilot and discuss technical topics, tips and tricks, flying adventures, news and current events.
Sonex Firewall Forward Installation Seminar
Help us determine when and where to conduct our next seminar.
Join us for the next Sonex-specific Firewall Forward Installation Seminar! Experienced Sonex builders will walk the group through the essential elements of a successful engine installation of AeroVee and Jabiru air-cooled engines. We'll get into the nitty-gritty of how to make your engine run cool, and keep it that way for years to come. The instructions provided by Sonex Aircraft are thorough and detailed, but nothing beats one-on-one discussion and personal attention to really illustrate these points. Pick the brains of the instructors and your fellow attendees and come away equipped with the knowledge to create a brilliant engine installation in your Sonex project!
The seminar will be located at the Lee's Summit Airport (KLXT). Attendance is open to anyone with an interest in experimental aircraft construction, and is particularly valuable for current or future Sonex builders. Seating is limited to 15 participants, with a minimum class size of 6. Register early as this seminar is expected to fill up.
