I've purchased two sets of plans and will be starting the first one this summer. Located in Kenai, Alaska.

I just purchased plans and hope to start building soon in League City. It would be nice to talk to some of the local people building to gets ideas and help each other. I am going to start looking for a source of materials in the Houston area while I start constructing my building table.

Hello all...
 I have just started an Affordaplane in my basement for now. Will move it to the garage in the spring.
Here is a real kick in the pants, I mentioned this project to a co-worker and he said he is also interested...and his father may just have enough room on his farm to start an ultralight park.
 Great to have such a forum to share ideas and to fix problems. I look forward to talking to all of you flyers. 8)

NORTH CAROLINA

Been on hold for a few years but have started back building. Working on aluminum ribs right now.
has anyone used them yet? Just wondering about covering and how to keep the end ribs from pulling in.
I am using a 503 with dual carbs and cdi and electric start.

:D Hello All, i bought a started frame from a man in tennessee, so its being built in Somerset, Ohio. Im going with the Kawasaki 440 engine, and the magnum re-drive i am contemplating building my wings out of wood. have you seen the cost for tubes lately.

so far i am replacing all of the gussets on this bird as the origingal owner went with .090 instead of .125 but his will give me the chance to inspect every inch of this plane. if all goes well i should be in the air by this fall.

Any one close to me flying theirs yet.
