have done single seater convex.
Officially it goes something like this.
Have sufficient experience (? )
Gain confidence in "similar" 2 seat aerie (in this case I would rekon another Sonex) with instructor
Instructor briefs on ground before the circuit.
Instructor signs out on autho sheet and yr monitors progress on radio
