Good point, that was kind of what I was thinking about actually, if I wanted to get started "right now" I can't, cause I don't have any material! Gonna make a shopping list for wood and steel.ejcheli. I have a bit of advice for your build to insure it gets finished with speed. Once you get the prints for what ever bird you want to build start with what ever your in the mood for but at the same time gather as much material and parts none stop and put in the corner because that's one of the biggest set backs is 'Waiting for parts and material" and trust me there is many things that need to be gotten starting with your build area.

The Pietenpol was the first homebuilt I fell in love with back in 1973 when I was 27. I'm sure I would have fit pretty good back then. Now days, the VP would be so much easier to enter and exit !!! As of now, I have my scratch built CH-701 wings and tail group up for sale and looking for something already flying. In the mean time, it's Cessna 150's and 172's. A VP project, that was not to far away and didn't need too much to complete would be a consideration. ****, where did the time go ?!That's true, I've seen some amazing footage from the cockpit on YouTube and I've also seen a video showing someone trying to get in up front... hehe, it was a "maneuver" to get it to say the least, but hey, its possible!
Edit: Here it is
Hey Fritz, I did, thanks! I bought the combo/bundle that includes them all from https://www.pietenpolaircraftcompany.com/purchase-pietenpol-air-camper-plans-and-aircraft-kits. I figured even if I don't necessarily need it, I want to see, read, and understand all the options and variants.ejcheli,
I see you got your builders manual today, congratulations! Which plan set(s) did you get?
