    Cool. Fortunately South Africa has more lenient homebuilt regulations.

    It's been done before, at Oshkosh!

    Does anyone remember, years ago (maybe late 70s), when Chris Heintz announced his intention to build a Zenith airplane from a kit at Oshkosh? Many volunteers signed up in advance, and my recollection is that they worked 24/7 to complete the airplane. It flew in less than 7 days.

    I saw Yellow at the 09 Oshkosh, flight around the world is a feat for lsa.

    I do not know about Oshkosh, but I know that Zenith built a Zodiac CH601 in 7 days at Sun 'n' Fun in 1993.
