Lets build a plane

Plenty of DIY plane kits for sale, often called "microlights" (filter by "light" and "for sale" or just browse) https://afors.com/light-aircraft/for-sale/United-Kingdom/9999-days

Several flying schools use DIY'd microlights, I tried to book at a couple of places but couldn't find a suitable date. eg https://www.bmaa.org/

An american forum but they have some great content https://www.homebuiltairplanes.com/forums/

Don't we have a bloke on here who flies wee tiny planes or something? Or is it paragliding?

Posted a picture taken mid flight from a paraglide over the lakes. That's more like a parachute type flight than a small plane.

That's me 🙃 I wouldn't trust me to build or fly anything else ;)

I always wanted a paramotor, the parachute wing thing with a Gentle Ben fan on my back. Now I think I'd prefer a powered wingsuit, though I'd be too scared to try either.

Paramotors are neither good aircraft or gliders... too slow with power and the glide is atrocious plus the vibration of a two stroke goes right through the frame, bone shakers. Paragliding is on another level - free flying and carving into thermals working towards the core and tightening the turns, exhilarating when done efficiently.
