What I learned Building my Own Airplane
November 4, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Flying an airplane can be fun in itself, but what about building your own? That lifelong childhood dream of building you own real airplane might be coming true; but what does it take to get there?
San Carlos Flight Center invites Reinhardt Quelle, an experienced Private Pilot and Airplane Builder to speak with the pilot community on the ups and downs of his experiences. The experimental/amateur built category provides seemingly limitless choices not only in what you can build, but also in *how* you build it, from scratch-building to builder-assist programs. There are some incredible advantages to the EAB route… and some downsides. Reinhardt will discuss his experiences with choosing, building, and now flying and maintaining his Sportsman. As a bonus, Reindhart will even bring his homebuilt airplane for a real tour after the seminar.
Don’t miss out on this one opportunity to learn from a fellow aviator how you can successfully build the airplane of your dreams. You don’t have to be an expert craftsman nor a physicist to build!
