Let’s Build a Pedal Plane!

As if we need more projects around our house, we've decided to take on a new one: a pedal plane! Amber has always thought these pedal planes were cute and I love a good project, so we decided to order the first kit and get started. This kit will allow us to build a "Super Cub" pedal plane that looks almost like a Piper Pacer. Our goal will be to create a miniature version of our airplane, but it won't be an exact replica.

The First Kit

What's also cool is that you can just buy a precision-cut plywood kit with many of the pieces already prepared. :) Can you imagine hand-cutting these beautiful pieces? I'll be starting this project this week, so watch for more information to follow. If you're interested in building one for yourself, or if you want to see a finished product, check out Aviation Products, Inc. for plans and more. More to come!
