Sonex Aircraft, LLC will be debuting the new B-Model design for Sonex and Waiex aircraft at Sun 'n Fun 2016. A tailwheel, AeroVee Turbo powered Waiex-B will be officially unveiled during a press event on opening day of the show, Tuesday April 5th at 9:30am in the Sonex Aircraft booth, NE-11&29, and will be on-display throughout the show. This will be the public's first opportunity to see the completed B-Model aircraft, as CAD renderings have only been released to-date. Sun 'n Fun will also serve as the official opening of the Sonex and Waiex B-Model order book, as only placeholder Kit Reservation Deposits have been accepted thus-far. B-Model Tail Kits are available for immediate shipping. Full kits and other B-Model sub-kits will begin shipping in June.
The Waiex-B on-display at Sun 'n Fun features an MGL Avionics iEFIS Explorer 8.5" dual-screen avionics suite, continuing the long-standing relationship held by Sonex Aircraft and MGL. Dynon Avionics has also stepped-up to the plate with their own B-Model package: a dual-screen Dynon SkyView Quick Panel with Advanced Flight Systems Control Module integration. The exciting new B-Model Dynon package will be on-display in the Sonex Booth with a working mock-up panel. Additionally UL Power will be on-hand in the Sonex Booth to speak to prospective B-Model customers interested in the UL-350 series engines for their project, while the AeroVee Turbo will be prominently on-display on the aircraft. Sonex and Waiex B-Models are available with 4 engine mount options: AeroVee/AeroVee Turbo, Jabiru/CAMit 3300, UL-350 series, and Rotax 912 series.
"What is the B-Model?" asks Sonex designer and founder John Monnett, "It's what you've been asking for! More of everything you want in a sport aircraft: More room and comfort, more panel space, more fuel, more engine choices, and more standard features combined with reduced build time and the same great Sonex and Waiex flight characteristics."
