The Sonex Aircraft Sonex aircraft is exclusively for private use, which in its turn is mainly due to the fact that American aircraft builders conduct aircraft production exclusively as self-assembly kits. In addition, in fact, the aircraft is devoid of the ability to transport a large number of people on its board, as well as all kinds of cargo, however, according to statistics, in just 5 years of production, Sonex Aircraft built and implemented 311 aircraft of this model, which Testifies to the high popularity of the aircraft among consumers.

Sonex Aircraft Sonex Aircraft has a fairly compact dimensions, which in turn carries a number of restrictions, but on the other hand makes it very maneuverable aircraft, which allows to classify it as a sports aircraft.
