The Peitenpol Air Camper.


So one thing I considered is building an Aeroplane. Not a kit, but from plans – right from scratch. I wanted something old school, open cockpit with bags of character, but stopping short of a biplane as I don’t want to have to build 2 sets of wings. The Peitenpol Air Camper is a proven design from the 1930s and looks just the part. It’s a 2 place machine so taking passengers will be possible, but realistically it’s a lot to take on – and I’m not that fussed about working with wood.

I have the space (just about), but then there’s transport, storage and learning to fly added into the mix. No-one else at home is that bothered about flying so I think, for now at least, that I won’t be building one of these.

Shame – it’s be a lot of fun!

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
