Episode 15 - “Sonex Acro”

February 2017

We explore the ins and outs of flying aerobatic maneuvers in a Sonex, review the types of maneuvers appropriate for a Sonex, and go over a few tips from our guest Mark Kingman to make flying acro a bit easier. In the news we discuss the NTSB's recently released Factual Report of the 2014 Sonex crash near Big Bear, CA.

Guest: Mark Kingman. Mark is a retired military aviator, flying F15’s in the Air Force and then moving on to fly helicopters in the Army. He retired as a commercial airline pilot flying Boeing 737's and Airbus 330's in 2009, and his current day job is flying EMS helicopters across eastern-Kansas. Mark completed Sonex #1304 in 2011, and has flown it nearly 500 hrs. He knows a thing or two about maneuvering flight, and regularly flies acro in his Sonex.
