I started my plans built project in 2003 after seeing and flying Eric Scheppers Sonex at the Arlington Fly-In in 2002.  I knew then the Sonex was what I was looking for.  I had flown the Zenith and found it to be a very docile plane, too docile.  I had flown the Glastar and loved it but I really didn't like the price or the glass work it involved.  I bought a set of "used" plans to get started on the Sonex but I took the next year to get my pilots license while I gathered up most of the materials that was needed.  I build when time allows me to.  I love my two kids and have a great time coaching their sports teams along with the trips to swimming lessons, Scouts, Brownies, and school functions.  To be honest sometimes its weeks before anything gets done on the plane but my family comes first.  I also have a small business doing product development and design called Weber Technical that keeps me very busy and clients always have deadlines that just have to be met.  Despite all of that I have managed to keep building and things are slowly showing progress.  I hope you enjoy browsing the pictures!


UPDATE:  After years of contract product design work out of my home I have recently taking a "real job" in the corporate world.  Since then I have been able to spend much more time working on the Sonex while stillnot ignoring my family and church duties.  Things are moving pretty fast right now and that makes me a happy camper.  I look forward to a first flight before 2009!
