Building your own airplane is a serious and satisfying commitment. The speciality tools and techniques can be mastered in as little as an afternoon if you're working with an experienced partner. In this playlist we'll share the best of what we've learned from 25+ years building and flying kit built airplanes.
We hear from a lot of builders who are excited to have navigated the myriad of choices necessary to order their first kit built airplane. It's exciting to have taken the leap but it's easy to be overwhelmed by the volume of techniques and tools that need to be mastered during their build. We've built Van's RV Series airplane kits and can simplify the shop customization process for new builders. This playlist will guide you through the three big choices to customize your kit and give you a few tips on how to shop on quality, instead of price. You're gonna fly the thing when you're done with it, after all.
