MakerPlane is an open source aviation project that aims to help people build and fly their own planes. The team want it to be safe, quick and easy to assemble low-cost planes using personal manufacturing equipment like 3D printers and CNC milling machines. They will offer free plans and instructions to those interested in building a plane to help them complete their project.
The mission of MakerPlane is to create innovative and game-changing aircraft, avionics and related systems and the transformational manufacturing processes to build them. As a result of this aim, aircraft can be built with consistent, repeatable and highly accurate processes which create safer flying at lower cost.
