I’m all for “out-of-the-Box” thinking as long as it doesn’t follow with “Out-of-the-Sky” results. Today Zenair will find out that-
Federal safety officials want the Federal Aviation Administration to immediately ground a type of small sports aircraft, saying six of the planes have broken up in flight in the past three years, killing 10 people.
I’ve been intrigued by kit airplanes. It’s a fraction of the price of a certificated plane made by the larger manufacturers (Piper, Cessna) and with a homebuilt you don’t have to pay for the whole thing at once, building a section at a time.
Still, you gotta be brave desperate to fly one of these.
This particular plane is the “Skybaby”. You can have first place in line.
