Brand new, still under warranty: The KITPLANES newsblog, where you will find the latest news and views on the world of homebuilt aviatioon. This is not intended to be a substitute for the great content you’ll find in each issue of the magazine or right here on KITPLANES.com, but rather it will serve as a venue for late-breaking news, opinion, show coverage and stories in brief. We hope you’ll take the time to share your insights with us as we embark on this effort, as you’re an integral part of the picture.
In Case You Missed it
Builder Walter Treadwell has taken on projects that many of us would find daunting, and he keeps upping the ante. First came a Lancair 235, then a plansbuilt Jenny JN-4, followed by a P-38 and then his current project, a resized Sikorsky S-38. Some 4000 hours into the new project, Treadwell has a ways to go, but fortunately he has a mini AgCat to fly in the meantime; by Bob Fritz.
