I'd love to go visit some but we don't have many of them going here. And on the few we have there aren't many interesting aircraft to see.
Lucky are those who live close to the cities where the biggest airshows happen. Of course the most interesting stuff to see there are the experimental homebuilt airplanes. A lot of amazing models that barely get any mention online are being shown there.
Fortunately there are good guys who take pictures from the shows and publish them. I researched for the latest and most interesting homebuild aircraft that have been demonstrated recently. I went further and researched where you can buy kits or plans for these vehicles so you can build some yourself.
So here you go, you don't have to visit these airshows. There's a lot of great stuff to see right here, below:. This is a truly cool wood airplane with simple construction. It's one of the most popular choices of the homebuilders because of its simplicity. VP-1 is a single seater but there is also VP-2 which is a double seater. Maximum speed: mph. You can buy plans from this site and hopefully build this aircraft yourself. RV-8 looks great and I guess it flies great too.
With its 21ft length it's a bit bugger than VP-1 and much faster. Some modifications can top a speed of mph. There are many quick-build kits for this aircraft containing all the aluminum parts and engine. There are cheaper and more expensive modifications of this lovely airplane. Better check the prices and all the info on the official site. Here's something different - a canard aircraft.
Too bad you can no longer find new plans for this one, and kits have never been offered. You could possibly find used plans and buy some parts for the Long-ez which is a modification of the VariEze. If you are interested to learn more about the canard airplanes in general, check out this forum.

Breezy aircraft is not a new model at all - it has been created in The kit would have been all the metal work and the fabric to cover the wings and tail. During my visit to that biggest airshow in the world, i saw that i needed to start working on another project. I abandoned the idea of making BirdGlider kits. Too good to not be available to the man of the street. And then it hit me. Why not do like Henri Mignet the person that started the homebuilding movement in ?
After the passing of Pierre Mignet son of Henri Mignet it was very unsure what would happen to the Mignet designs. Alain Mignet took the noble decision to place all the plans on the internet That way it is sure that the work of the Mignet family would not go to waste. The Mignet family was my inspiration to begin with the BirdGlider. I saw the need for a airplane for the man of the street, like they did in 's.
With this knowledge it became very easy for me to decide i would safe this glider for the man of the street by placing it on the internet. The BirdGlider comes to you now. Use it to become airborne. Use it to realise your dream of flight Guys, i want to be generous to you.
That is why i need to place some rules before you get access to the plans. Rule 1 This is a non-certified, non-tested airplane. Build the BirdGlider using the plans at own risk. If you think i don't trust the BirdGlider, invite me when you finished the BirdGlider, like it is on plans.
I will test-fly the first made glider gladly. Do it after learning about steering, weather, gliding, local aviation rules. And that will not even prevent you getting hurt. Every pilot knows a pilot who is no longer there, who is disabled or who stopped out of fear or old wounds.
I say it again Rule 2 The plans may only be used for personal use only. No commercial use is allowed. Not even selling printed plans. If you see somebody not behaving to this rule, tell me, give me his identity. The person will have to take the consequences of his deeds. I can be noble, but You are warned. Rule 3 You are not allowed to use the name BirdGlider if you altered the design. If i agree to your changes, you may use the name BirdGlider.Browse through the plans featured in Model Aviation.
