To a resource for owners of the experimental, homebuilt class of aircraft and for pilots of other general aviation and recreational flying machines. You will find a wealth of information about airplane and engine performance, pilot airmanship, VFR flight planning tips and other aviation aspects of interest for seasoned aviators or new pilots alike.
To assist with your preflight we offer a selection of frequently updated specialized weather charts, notices to airmen (NOTAM), performance calculators and current ADDS weather (METAR/TAF) reports. A selection of aviation news related feeds are also available in the menu.
Modern cockpits with EFIS, GPS, TCAS, ADS-B and Mode S transponders and handheld tablets are discussed as these state-of-the-art technologies require pilots to become familiar with them too, as we see these glass cockpits more and more every year. All of this is complemented with a growing library of articles with even more fascinating subjects for you to peruse.
If building from scratch is not the way to go for you, the next best option might be to shop around for an almost (or fully) completed project and finish that together with an experienced builder or even go for a factory certified/built model. Things to watch for when buying an aircraft are also on site and our list of available aircraft can be found in our marketplace.
