First Open Source Airplane Could Cost Just $15,000


There’s an open source airplane being developed in Canada, and now its designers are looking to double down on the digital trends, turning to crowdsourced funding to finish the project. The goal of Maker Plane is to develop a small, two-seat airplane that qualifies as a light sport aircraft and is affordable, safe, and easy to fly.

Cost efficient and affordable for the people. However, I don't know how to fly a plane and build one even with the guide/steps :smh: , also I will not have the right tools to do so. Kind of hope that they were offering to fly people to destination for cheap.
