Passion for flight leads to increase in do-it-yourself plane builders
LAKEWOOD – With a basic understanding of aerodynamics and $9,000, Brad Delisle is building an airplane in his basement.
The 21-year-old Lakewood resident is part of a growing number of pilots who make their own planes.
Delisle got hooked on Microsoft’s “Flight Simulator” before his sixth birthday. He started flying planes at 13 and got a pilot’s license at 18. Building his own was a natural progression, he said.
