Welcome to my Homebuilt Aircraft web site, where I maintain pictoral logs of my aircraft construction for later inspection by the FAA. I am currently working on my 1929 designed Pietenpol aircraft (plans built). The main reason for these logs is to provide documentation to meet the FAA's 51% rule. From the time of the Wright Brothers, the CAA and now FAA, have allowed citizens to build and fly aircraft for "experimental and educational" purpose as long as they build 51% of the aircraft. This rule remains in place to this day, and maintaining a log is key. I am currently focusing on my Pietenpol project. The tail feathers are complete, wings ribs are complete, the main fuselage is finished, landing gear is on. Additionally, everything is varnished, the engine mount is on, and I have started constructing the wings. I also have some other areas of interest on my web site. Thanks for stopping in...
