I am one of 30,000 individuals who have built and flown their own experimental aircraft. It took 5 years and 2,360 hours of building time. It was a journey of discovery - how to build an aluminum airplane - and a search for the will to labor for so long on an uncertain and expensive goal. It is one of the major accomplishments in my life. I hope this video conveys my quest to build and fly by own aircraft. I was my quest to take flight and it came true.
