    New Guy,

    Pietenpol Air Camper, hard to get more straight forward than that. It‘s all wood, easy to fly, two seats, so you can have an instructor teach you how to fly. Cheap to build and to operate. Ther is an annual fly-in just before Oshkosh each year. Good luck

    Scientists Turn CO2 Into Jet Fuel
