The 150-mph Sonerai is a real “spark plug” in the VW/racing picture. This midwing sport plane/racer was designed to meet all PRPA Formula VEE requirements for 1,600cc VW-powered aircraft. Its wings are aluminum, built with folding panels so the aircraft can be towed tail-first on its own gear. Fuselage and tail are of standard chrome-moly tubing. Cowling is fiberglass, and fuselage and tail surfaces are fabric covered.
