Thinking of tackling a homebuilt or kitplane? Sounds great -- but there are pitfalls to be avoided. The unhappy fact is, up to 90 percent of homebuilt projects are not completed by the original builder -- and many are never finished at all! That's why this book was written: To help you decide whether homebuilding is truly for you and to help you choose, from the many available plans and kits, a plane you will enjoy building as well as flying. This no-nonsense book addresses your key questions head-on:
· Can you build it?
· Can you fly it?
· Can you afford it?
· Plans, kit, or materials package?
· Engines, auto gas & avionics
· Regulations & insurance
· Reports on more than 50 aircraft
There are Flight Evaluations on designs by Lancair, Glasair, Avid, Van's, Zenair, RotorWay, and many others -- all with specifications and performance charts! Reading this book could prevent you from starting a multi-year project you won't finish, or from making mistakes that could cost thousands. For more details, click here.
"A book that should be read by anyone considering building an airplane. It answers a lot of questions you might not think to ask until it's too late."
Dave Martin, editor of KITPLANES
