Before ordering his kit, Aaron visited numerous websites, talked to owners, ordered literature, studied specs and thought for a long time about what he was looking for. He narrowed his considerations down to several designs. “Some of the kits would have taken up to five or six or more years of my life with the time I had available.” In the end, he zeroed in on the Sonex…it was fast, had good range, it was aerobatic, could be built in a short period of time and was the lowest priced of the complete kits. Aaron signed up for one of the Sonex workshops, held at the Sonex factory in Oshkosh. He brought his checkbook and when he’d completed the workshop, he signed a contract for a Sonex kit.
