SONERAI I from Aircraft Spruce Canada
  • Contact Us

The Sonerai I is a mid-wing sport plane racer designed to meet all of the original Professional Race Pilots Association (PRPA) and Formula Vee Racing requirements for 1600cc Volkswagen-powered aircraft. The stock Sonerai I conforms to the new SuperVee Air Sports specifications. The Sonerai I will accept engine displacements from 1600cc thru 2180cc.

The wing is composed of two panels that fold alongside the fuselage, enabling the airplane to be towed tail first on its own landing gear. The fuselage and tail surfaces are constructed of standard sizes of 4130 steel tubing, and are fabric covered. The wings are fabricated from 2024-T3 Alclad aluminum sheet. The fiberglass cowling removes easily to allow complete access to the engine, fuel tank, and instruments. The landing gear is a formed aluminum spring, and a tapered rod tail spring is used for the tailwheel.
