Single-Place, Folding Wing Sport Aircraft Introduced At Oskhosh In 2010
The first customer-built example of the new Onex single-place, folding-wing, aerobatic sport aircraft has flown for the first time. Bill Fisher of Jackson Tennessee flew his AeroVee powered, standard gear Onex, serial number ONX0018 for the first time on Thursday, May 10th. Bill received the fourth Onex kit sold by Sonex Aircraft, shipped on August 5, 2011.
The Onex is a single-seat aircraft designed to offer an even-more economical way to build and fly a sport pilot aircraft. The folding-wing design can fit into a garage, or share a T hangar with other aircraft, be trailered on local roads, and the wing panels are easily removed for trailering at highway speeds. The Onex follows the Sonex Aircraft design and engineering tradition in offering a simple, robust, aerobatic aircraft capable of squeezing incredible performance out of lower powered engines. Like all other Sonex Aircraft, the Onex is designed for use with the AeroConversions AeroVee Engine.
The simple, low cost, and technically advanced AeroVee Engine Kit is a perfect fit for the Onex, offering outstanding performance and economy. The Onex Complete Airframe Kit and Sub-Kits are the most advanced kits ever produced by Sonex Aircraft, offering more than ever before in pre-fabricated parts and matched-hole tooling. Staying true to the Sonex Aircraft mission of offering The Best Performance Per Dollar, Onex kit builders can get their aircraft flying for as little as $25,299.
