    Nice to see some information on this airplane. The first (and last) time I'd ever seen a BD-5 was at an airshow back in the 80s, I think, with the BD-5J.

    Good stuff!
    Interesting side note: his BD-5 site is dedicated to the memory of Princess Diana. That's not an association I'd have ever been able to make on my own.

    There was one doing flight demo's at Copperstate (Casa Grande, AZ) last year. http://bd-micro.com I believe the purpose of them being there was to find customers - as I believe they may have been selling new kits.

    There is also a business at my home airport (KAVQ) that operates them. I saw something in one of these news emails about them making a "last flight" in the local area after packing one up to ship to Europe or something. Not sure if they are in the business of building/supporting builders, but at least there's a resource that is currently working with them. http://www.freedomjet.com

    There's a BD-5 Jet being built at Santa Paula Airport in California, by a Mr. Dan Grey. Its gonna be pretty cool, it has a second model airplane engine that will provide auxillary power and even 100ft/min climb with the main engine out.
