My husband has been thinking about building his own aircraft to fly and someone he knows told him about Kitplanes which come in many different styles and prices. What I'm wondering is how many people have actually built these planes and flown them? I'm a little nervous that it won't work. Would you fly in something like this?

Not on your life. I don't like flying to begin with (except helicopters), much less in a plane that my neighbor built in his garage.

Not for me, sorry.

The only way you would get me on such an aircraft is to knock me out first and do a 'Mr T' on me. Frankly I'm quite surprised you would even let your husband entertain that notion... :o
