Thousands of people work in their garages and workshops building airplanes, the flying enthusiast's dream. Some are building their own design, others are building a ready to assemble kit-plane.
Homebuilt aircraft are constructed by persons for whom this is not a professional activity.Building an aircraft, from start to flying, is the ultimate hands-on project. Each builder's kit comes complete with a highly refined assembly manual that makes the step-by-step process easy to follow and rewarding to undertake. Other enthusiasts are very supportive with a wealth of knowledge and experience to share.
Most of the airplanes are tested and flown by their builders, and turn out to be of good quality and a safety record comparable to factory built. These airplanes cannot be used for any other purpose, except flying for fun.
