    Anybody have a spare windscreen?
    I had to buy a 2400x1200 sheet during construction to replace the original that I stuffed up from over-trimming and I’m 95% sure the replacement was supplied by BFS Plastics in Salisbury QLD.

    Wing root fairing
    It’s been a bit quiet here lately, so in order to generate a little discussion, has anyone given consideration to fitting wing root fairings to their Sonex?

    This is NOT an official Sonex website and is not moderated by Sonex. It is contributed to by owners and builders of the Sonex family of kit built aircraft in Australia.

    THIS SITE IS CLOSING DOWN
    We have had this site on Wikispaces for many years. Initially it was free, then we were charged a modest yearly fee, covered by subscriptions to SonexAus by a few paid up members. The hosting platform is being shut down mid 2018 so our site will disappear, but several members are working on transferring as much content as we can to a new site. Watch this space.

    LEETON Fly-in September 15-16 2018
    Make sure you pencil it into your calendar for later this year. Warren Kirkup and the Leeton Aviators Club will host a relaxing weekend at Leeton for all Sonex builders and hangers-on. No big program, just a great chance to catch up and talk Sonex for a few hours.

    Feeling deflated
    I MAY have solved this puzzle. I pulled the wheel off again and checked the tyre. All OK but a found a small amount of fine gravel in the tyre. It may be that I introduced that when I fitted the tyre and never managed to get it out. All my recent tyre repairs have been on dirt or gravel where it is pretty easy to introduce grit and hard to remove it.
