Glasair: Build an airplane in two weeks

Glasair's "Two Weeks To Taxi" program has been approved by the FAA. Pilots can now build their own experimental category "homebuilt" aircraft with the help of Glasair technicians inside of two weeks vacation time.

My Home Depot Project Airplane
Showing some of the Home Depot projects done around my home including the beginning of a more ambitious project a real airplane. When complete the wingspan will be approx. 18 ft. Fuselage 14 ft. Power-plant will be 20-25 HP Briggs & Stratton. I intend to build it so that it is cheap to operate or repair. So far all materials have come from Home Depot.





Rolls Royce Turbine Engine For Small Planes
A 300+ hp (flat rated) turbine that weighs well under 300 pounds designed for small general aviation aircraft. Is this what the high-end piston market has been waiting for? Pilots may be asking, and Mooney may have an answer. Aviation news at http://www.avweb.com

Aero-TV: Sub-Sonex "Teeny " Jet - Re-Engined and Ready for Flight Test
Even Smaller Than A Micro-Jet, 'Monnett's Madness' Has Produced Something Even Cooler Than Usual I think John Monnett is nuts... a pure, certifiable, grade-A, crazy-man... and in the best of all possible ways. His inspired madness has not only brought forth Jet: Re-Esome great airplanes that have furnished the necessary means (and yes, madness) by which hundreds, even thousands, of pilots (overall) have managed to keep their hearts, minds and bodies in the world of flight, but he shows NO signs of slowing down. And for that, aviation is a better (and more affordable) place. One of the most divinely inspired bits of craziness has led John to develop a teeny-tiny single-place jet airplane that will cost less to build and fly than most APUs used by the civil jet fleet. And better yet; the SubSonex single-place jet aircraft is about to resume testing. Following a series of initial high-speed taxi tests, the Sonex Aircraft Hornets' Nest Research and Development team determined that a review and modification of the aircraft design was necessary to achieve acceptable handling qualities for the average pilot. Due to the increased power offered by the new PBS TJ-100 engine selected for the SubSonex, it was determined that a tricycle gear configuration would be needed to increase yaw stability on the ground in the transition phase approaching takeoff speeds. Unveiled at AirVenture 2009 under the banner of the Hornets' Nest Research and Development program, the SubSonex jet was intended as an effort to study the feasibility and marketability of a small, single-place homebuilt jet aircraft. The SubSonex has attracted a tremendous level of interest from the public and aviation press, however, Sonex Aircraft, LLC has not yet decided if the aircraft will become an available homebuilt aircraft product. Following first flight of the aircraft and a full series of flight tests, Hornets' Nest designers plan to construct a second SubSonex prototype with a larger cockpit, enhanced landing gear system and other refinements to further evaluate the aircraft concept.

Amazing turbine STOL homebuilt airplane
This is Scott Ehni's custom Zenith CH701 airplane (that he scratch-built from plans) powered by the lightweight Garrett JFS 100-13A turboshaft engine, putting out at least 90 BHP at a prop speed of 3,100 rpm, burning about 12 gph. The small APU will work on almost any liquid that will burn. The best off-airport fuel choice is a mix of diesel and unleaded regular gas as it burns a bit cleaner. Awesome turbine jet engine sound on the experimental aircraft!

BD-10 Homebuilt Supersonic Jet Aircraft (2 of 2)
Note: This is video 2 of 2, Time 9:27-19:13 It was supposed to be a supersonic homebuilt jet aircraft that could cruise at up to M 1.14 on a single GE J85 and a range of about 1,200 miles. It also was fully capable of exceeding a climb rate of 12,000 Feet Per Minute (achieving 10,000 feet from take off in under 40 seconds) Unfortunately, due to the design of the aircraft structurally, there was an accident and Jim Bede canceled the program. The accident related to vertical tail stabilizer failure when the test pilot was testing Mach 1.0+ capabilities. This resulted in structural failure and a fatal crash. The total price of this aircraft was to be well under $1 million. (Give me 2 days locked in a room and I could have solved those issues completely). Anyways, if this aircraft was fixed and made sound structurally, it would be dominating the the market today. http://www.cdmaximum.com





SD-1 Minisport homebuilt ultralight aircraft
The aircraft conforms to FAI UL and LSA definitions. MTOM is 240 kgs (533 lbs). Maximum payload is 130 kgs (289 lbs). More infos on www.sdplanes.com.





Verhees Delta, a FAST, tiny homebuilt airplane
It is small, only 50 HP but ...has cruise speed of 220 km/h. Its single retracting wheel gives the idea it is tricky on the ground, but it is not. Also stable in the air. Uses 13 liters/h at cruise speed. Has tank of 50 liters. So ...ideal to travel.





Building your own airplane - compressed into three minutes
Rudi Greyling from South Africa created this amazing video showing time lapse photography of building his Van's RV-7. He posted this video to the vansairforce.net website - but I figured youtube would save bandwidth and make for easier sharing. If you are interested in this airplane see vansairforce.net, user RudiGreyling.
