Monnett Moni 
The Moni was designed by the American John Monnett who called it an "Air recreation vehicle": Its design, its performance and its ease of construction was supposed to please any builder-pilot. 
The maiden flight took place in July 1981 and Monnett sold 380 kits (theoretical construction time: 500 to 600 hours), which classifies it as "Experimental" in the USA and “homebuilding” in Europe. The large wingspan and low engine power also classify it as a powered glider. It is made entirely of aluminum and is assembled with pop rivets. The Moni is available in several versions: single monowheel mounted in a streamlined fairing beneath the fuselage with a steerable tailwheel behind it, classic undercarriage and fixed tricycle undercarriage. 
 John Monnett designed other kits, such as the Sonerai and Monerai.

The unique Moni built and registered in Belgium is kit n°81. It will be registered
OO-142 on 19/2/2001 by Charles Demoulin, its builder.
