Customers often ask," How much space does it take to build an AirCam? What tools will I need? What is the preferred order of building the sections?"
Before the 1960s garages tended to be smaller then those from the 60s -90s. Again recently the garages have decreased in size. That being said an AirCam airframe's sections can be completely built in any single or larger garage. However it may not be able to be assembled. Let's investigate further. All sections of the AirCam except for the fuselage can easily be built in any one car garage. However, in a single car garage, after finishing a few sections you would need to make room for the next section(s) you're building by storing the completed sections off-site. In a two car garage it is not necessary to store completed sections off premises.
The difference between an AirCam pilot and other pilots is how we fly. While other pilots are busy looking at their panel and what's miles out in front of them, Aircam pilots tend to be looking at what is a few hundred feet below them.
I believe that is the main reason why I never get tired of flying the AirCam. Each and every flight is a new adventure.
Face it, flying at normal vfr and ifr altitudes is monotonous. What thrills me about the AirCam is the feeling that you aren't just looking at a picture, but you're part of the picture. Indeed, you'll know what I mean the first time you fly over a dairy farm.
