Aero-TV: Ya Gotta Know When To Fold 'Em -- Sonex 'Onex' Single-Seater

Monnett's Thriftiest Flyer Yet... With Folding Wings!

Drawings of John Monnett's Onex concept aircraft were first shown at AirVenture 2009, while the real thing, nearly ready for flight test, made its debut at this year’s Oshkosh event. The Onex is a simple and economical single-place all metal aircraft design that promises to continue the lineage of outstanding Sonex Aircraft sport pilot performance. In addition to being a single-place aircraft, the Onex stands-out as a unique design with its folding wing mechanism, which allows the aircraft to meet standard trailer widths while fitting into a standard 7’ garage door, and the wing panels can easily be removed for trailering at highway speeds.

With wings folded, five Onex aircraft can also be stored in a single T-hangar. Like the rest of the Sonex Aircraft line of airframes, the Onex will offer great efficiency, speed and performance as a sport pilot legal aircraft with its AeroVee powerplant. Onex (pronounced “One-X”) is a single-seat aircraft designed to offer an even-more economical way to build and fly your sport pilot aircraft.

The Onex follows the Sonex Aircraft design and engineering tradition in offering a simple, robust, aerobatic aircraft capable of squeezing impressive performance out of lower powered engines.

Eligible for operation under Sport Pilot guidelines (AeroVee-Powered Onex), the newest member of Sonex's 'Hornet's Nest' has a maximum speed in level flight with maximum continuous power (Vh) of not more than 120 kts (138 mph) CAS under standard atmospheric conditions at sea level. The bird is also an aerobat... 'Loops, rolls, spins... all kinds of fun stuff..." says the Sonex crew.
