I have been working with our local Maker Faire / Maker Station and EAA Chapter 2 to promote aircraft building. I presented a library lecture this summer as part of the Fort Wayne Maker lecture series. I expanded this presentation for the Sept. meeting of EAA Chapter 2.


Our local Ivy Technical College made a video of this presentation and they have just completed the editing. They did a really professional job on this and posted it on Youtube. Here is the link about my experiences with building a Zenuth Zodiac CH 650B:




If you get a chance, let others know that an average person CAN learn and build their own aircraft!

Nicely done Larry! The Maker Faire "movement" is a great venue to get the message out about home building!
