Sonex "B" Models

With the introduction of the "B" models Sonex now has standard FWF packages for the Rotax 912 series and the UL Power 350i(s) on top to the already standard VW and Jabiru/Camit options.

Are there any plans to design a Viking FWF package for the "B" Models as well?

The aircraft have been made wider at the firewall so the old mount & cowl won't fit anymore unfortunately.

  • The Viking 130 use a different mount and cowl anyhow.
    Plan on using a Viking 130 for the B model. Performance will be better than any of the other engines you mentioned.
    Do NOT use a VW conversion if you are serious about taking a passenger. The UL and Rotax will be fine but expensive.

Hi all,I'm very curious about the Viking engines for the RANS S-21. Anyone else building a S-21 considering a Viking? 130 vs Turbo? I've seen the S-20 with the 141 wing on Youtube and it seems you get good performance with the 130. I'm also consider…

Jan, I have added inspection and cleaning of the internal filter in the fuel pump to my annual list. Can you explain how the filter is accessed? Glenn Davis
