THIS WEB SITE
This site is entirely non-commercial—none of the modest amount that Eric asks for his plans and books goes here. This is simply the product of one FRED fan’s desire to spread the word about this often overlooked but eminently fun and practical little airplane.
All errors and omissions are my own. I am not an engineer or otherwise qualified to design airplanes, just a longtime homebuilt aircraft enthusiast. If you are not ready to accept the risk and responsibility of building your own aircraft, then please choose a different hobby.
Questions, comments, photos, videos and all other submissions are welcome and encouraged.
