Aerolite 103 Kit Being Built at Fun Fly Zone

The thousands of homebuilders at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019 know that building your own plane is achievable, but a significant percentage of attendees might not. To shine some light on the process — and show that you, too, can build an airplane (or, in this case, a vehicle) — the folks from U-FLY-IT Light Sport Aircraft and Hayes Aero are building an Aerolite 103 kit during the week.

In addition to seeing an aircraft built before their eyes, visitors can observe a team with experience tackling the kit build, while learning tips and tricks for building ultralight aircraft. Dennis Carley, the owner of U-FLY-IT, and Rick Hayes from Hayes Aero are mainly handling the construction, with some help along the way. The build is going on in the workshop tent in the Fun Fly Zone, right next to the Ultralight Barn.
