2017 Great Lakes Sonex Fly In

The 5th Annual Great Lakes Sonex Fly In is just around the corner – Saturday June 24th @ Clow International Airport 1C5, 130 South Clow International Parkway, Bolingbrook Illinois 60440

Sponsored by the Illinois Aviation Museum

Hosted by EAA Chapter 461

First presentation starts @ 9:00 AM

Our goal at the Great Lakes Sonex Fly In is to offer all those interested,  in building and/or flying a Sonex, Waiex, Xenos, Onex or SubSonex the opportunity to learn more about these planes, but also a setting for everyone to share with others their interests and experiences.

We have another great lineup of presentations this year.   This is a free event open to all aviation enthusiasts.  The first presentation starting at 9:00 AM.  We will break for lunch – separate checks please and then finish up back at the museum.

Bryan Cotton  – presentation/discussion on his progress with his Waiex 191 build.

Russ Pavlock – currently building Sonex 1351 will discuss the B modification kit that he is currently in the process of using to modify his Sonex. Picture below is marking the left wing for trimming.
