Not everyone has the desire to fly on his own. You’re probably been keen on flying ever since you were pondering how to build an airplane for a school project. There’s something magical about elevating yourself above the ground that most people don’t really understand. Only the real aficionados. And the pride you feel after completing your very own DIY ultralight aircraft! Well, only your fellow craftsmen understand why it’s worth toiling hundreds of hours to finally complete that build your own airplane kit. It doesn’t matter what your vocation is. Once you’re in the garage (or some other available space), the whole world stops turning as you begin work on your beauty. Or at least it appears to stop before your family calls you out for dinner.

Nowadays there are so many airplane kits for sale that make your life easier. What is more, lots of companies offer partially assembled kits to make the whole tiring process shorter. Unfortunately, lots of people give up building an airplane because they realize too late they’re in over their heads and it’s much more time-consuming than they had expected. If you aren’t a patient person, then you can stop googling how to build your own airplane immediately. That decision will save you money, effort and time. But if you still prefer flying your own plane, check out our list of 7 easiest private and fighter jets to fly.

With so many airplane kits for sale, it was hard to choose the least complicated ones. Hardly anyone confirms how many hours of work you have to put in, sot he list has to be random. For our list, we chose an aircraft that is famous for incredibly short assembly time. Also, if two sources agreed on some planes, it was an excellent recommendation. Speaking of which, our information providers were: Air Space Mag, WiredFlying Mag and Pilot Planes.  Last but not the least, a plane without a cockpit surely requires less time than the others.
