Choosing a Custom Built

Choosing a Custom Built

How can you choose the right plans or kit for your custom-built or experimental aircraft? Many new flyers spend years researching the models and features they want. You don’t have to take that long. Using resources mentioned earlier you can do your research and come up with a plane that meets your goals and your finances in just a few weeks.

Of course, the plan you select isn’t the one you’ll keep forever. You’ll someday want to build your second experimental aircraft, then maybe your third. In fact, some flyers find out they love building as much as flying, starting a new project soon after the last one is done. Just remember that, to someday sell your experimental plane, you’ll need to carefully document every step of the process so the next owner is comfortable that you’ve done it right. That’s what you would want if you were to buy an experimental-class aircraft.
