The Sonex Builders and Pilots Foundation has received the long-awaited letter from the IRS informing us that the Foundation is officially approved under section 501(c) (3) as a tax exempt not for profit organization.

This letter also states that contributions are officially tax deductible and is effective February 18, 2013.Our designation is a public charity.

A message from Sonex Builders & Pilots Foundation:


Greetings all fellow Sonex/Waiex/Xenos/Onex builders, owners, pilots and all those interested in experimental aircraft, sport aviation, and Sonex aircraft.

As you may be aware, the NTSB has been encouraging the experimental aircraft community to improve the safety record of amateur-built aircraft. Type Clubs have demonstrated to have been a significant factor in the overall improvement in first flight, flight testing, and continued operation of E/AB aircraft.

In concert with the above, there have been a core group of Sonex builders/owners who have expressed a desire over the past few months to grow the Sonex community across the nation. What started as one-on-one discussions about bringing more groups together, growing a community, promoting safety, education, and transition training, has now morphed into an informed coalition of individuals who are interested in building a national Sonex type club.

Other experimental and certified aircraft models have type clubs. It is our belief the time is right for a Sonex type club. One glance at the current conversation in the experimental aviation community shows an increased emphasis on many of the topics we have as goals.
We have named this organization the Sonex Builders and Pilots Foundation.

While we have received the blessing of Sonex Aircraft, LLC, this organization has no formal ties with Sonex Aircraft, LLC. All opinions and information contained within are the result of tech counselor, builder/pilot experiences or trusted sources.

Just to be clear, when we speak of Sonex, we are speaking about all Sonex types of aircraft and all those who currently or may in the future build, fly, own, or those who just admire Sonex aircraft.
