There are well over 1,000 different kit plane
models on the market today plus hundreds more than be plans built. Kits
can start in price from the under $5,000 to over $100,000.
Before you start we need to make sure your plane will fit your budget,
needs, and that it fits the category you want to fly it in. Having built
planes in the Advanced ultralight category, Basic ultralight category, and
Amateur built category we can advise you on the advantages and
disadvantages of each.
Having built and flown over 600 different kit planes we can give you
the pro's and cons of each.
If your budget is limited we can assist in evaluating a used or
pre-owned kit plane for you. Our staff has the knowledge and experience to
give you an evaluation on the plane, it's airframe, wings, fabric, engine,
prop, landing gear, paint, etc.
This evaluation could save you thousands and thousands of dollars in
repair if you are looking to buy a pre-owned kit plane. A plane with weak
fabric, or an engine that is coming up on TBO can cost from $1,000 over
$10,000 to fix or replace.
