Once again, another example of the media out to get general aviation (/sarcasm)
From the Hickory Record
Paul Wise is building an airplane. In his garage.
The northwest Hickory resident loves to fly and wanted an airplane of his own.
But, "There are no airplanes to rent, and buying one is pricey," Wise said.
The idea of building his own took shape when he went to the Osh Kosh air show, one of the biggest and most famous in the world.
Wise is a member of The Blue Ridge Aviators, an Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter. The EAA puts on the Wisconsin show, AirVenture Osh Kosh.
"I saw plans for a kit plane there," he said, "and was interested."
