I am currently planning on building an ultr-light aircraft in my spare time. Since I am out of school for the summer I have a lot of spare time... The only thing holding me back from creating it is my lack of money. If anyone knows good places to shop for propellers or the wingmaterial please drop a link.<br /><br />I will continue to post as I build my very own airplane. I have already gone through the design phase in my mind and I will be puting my own design on paper in a short while. If you want to see the pix of my design ideas ask for them.<font color="red"> I am really going to need some help.....</font><br /><br /><font color="orange">send my way any information u can provide at all....</font><br />nikshlike@yahoo.com

Yikes! You are building it from scratch from your own design??!! Have you ever built an airplane before?? If not, maybe you want to get a kit first. There are some pretty cheap ones out there. Of course, if you decide to build your own, just make sure it is equipped with a BRS Parachute <img src="/images/icons/smile.gif" />

I've looked at a lot of different ultra-lights, including at EAA (EAA was awsome this year I can't wait for next years <img src="/images/icons/smile.gif" /> ). I ws thinking about getting a kit but decided it would be a lot more fun if I built it on my own. I'll go throught the proper safety prosecdures before flying it high. It most likelywont fly on the first 30 times but the build should be fun. I still need to find a cheap placeto buy the propeller and the wing material tthe rest I plan on macining myself.

This topic belongs in the Aviation forum, not here in SB&T. I will move it there.

You already know about the EAA. Al the help you need is right there.

There are local chapters all over, which are quite willing to accept serious new members, or even dreamers.

Contact EAA Membership to find the chapter nearest you, and begin networking with them. You can learn more by hands-on work on another's real airplane than from any book or course.
