Sonex 982 Sierra X-ray
Welcome to the construction and testing index page for Sonex N982SX.
I’m Bob Meyers and I started building my Sonex Aircraft in October of 2006 at my home in downtown Chicago. I recieved my Airworthiness Certificate 8/10/2010 and first flight was a week later on 8/17/2010
This page has been created as the index to my more than 160 Sonex building logs that document the construction of my Sonex.
With construction and flight testing completed, I am now enjoying my Sonex whenever I want.
While I have discontinued posting to this page and my building blog I plan on leaving it available to all who find it helpful or interesting.
