OK... I'll bite.
Where are you located? That way we can make our "advice" more appropriate.
What kind of flying have you done? "None" is a perfectly fine answer. We all started out that way. And flight time if relevant (I have about 600 hours).
What kind of flying would you like to do? Warning - Many Dreamers in forums (like me!).
Do you have any building skills? Which material (wood, metal)? Tools on hand? Work shop??

Howdy Dun! Welcome to this incredible place.

I think I may have already met your business partner, Mr. Bradstreet... :)

What kind of airplane stuff are you interested in?

Hi, thanks

i am not sure who is mr. Bradstreet he he :)?

Am interested in ultralights, vw conversions. I like to read anything on the topic of composite material combinations, structural engineering, batteries and energy density R&D. Hoping for a good 500 W/kg before death :)

For my first homebuilt project, I still need to get some more tools, install an engine test stand for the vw, and all sorts of stuff.

I flew pistons for some time thereafter bombardier CRJ and recently retired.
I don’t have much mechanical experience, but with the “big 3” - money, time, and motivation - i can amend that :)

There is a ton of info on this repository of homebuilt ac and i am glad to join in on the fun

Hello, Percy, thanks for the welcome

Where are you located?
I live In EU

What kind of flying have you done?
Private piston VFR/IFR and commercial jet IFR


What kind of flying would you like to do?
haven’t done seaplane, gliding or aerobatics yet but I like best vfr x-country!

Do you have any building skills? Which material (wood, metal)? Tools on hand? Work shop??
I do, with wood and metal, but not so much with welding and almost no practical time with composites. I have some tools but for the vw conversion i need a lot more. Plenty of space in the workshop, ‘though :)
