I am interested in building sometime one of these kit planes myself, the one i found to be of most interest is the Sd1 Minisport, its a Czech built aircraft/kit. It comes in various stages of constuction from basic materials kit @ €798, 51% kit €6,927 or fully complete €21,954.
Comes in tail dragger or tricycle landing gear. Engines range from 28hp to 50hp Hirth or briggs and stratton.
Have been in contact with the NMAI and was told this aircraft is fine under the Irish Permit system.
" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; is the website for it.
Personally, I like this model much better than the Minimax, not to put the minimax down or anything, but this is a newer aircraft and much cleaner look.
Best of look with your choice!
