Homebuilding of experimental aircraft? Answered
I am a professional aerospace engineer who homebuilds aircraft in my garage when not doing so for work. I live and work at the Mojave Airport which is a hotbed for aircraft homebuilding stretching all the way back to the 80's. The experimental aircraft community does not have anything like what you all are doing on this website. When I found your site the first thought was that I had finally found the place to talk about buillding airplanes. But I see no such topics on the site. While fundamentally I assume the problem is only that the channel has not yet been created or there is a liability problem, I wonder if there isn't more to it. Is the thought of designing and building and flying your own airplane not as awesome for others as it is for those of us who live in Mojave? Is there something that can be done to make this exciting world more exciting to people (like yourselves) who take such pride and make such investments in doing cool stuff in your garages?
