This web site is brought to you as a public service by its authors.
You should know that while we might be reasonably clever folks,
we do not have any formal training in aeronautical engineering.
In fact, we don't have any of the recognized professional-grade
certifications in the field of aviation.
So use the information on this site, and the sites to which it links,
at your own risk.
In particular, we are not engineers and do not provide engineering services.
Your use of the information
on this website does not create an engineer-client relationship
between us. We provide
this information on what the lawyers call an "as-is" basis. We certainly make no
warranties regarding the information provided and disclaim liability
for any damages resulting from its use. That means if you read this
site and then go out and somehow manage to hurt your darn self,
or worse hurt somebody else, do not even think about blaming
(or much less suing) us. Got it?
And one more word of caution: As every pilot knows,
any time you take command of an aircraft,
you are literally taking your life and
lives of your passengers into your hands. This is particularly
true of flight in an aircraft that you have built yourself. So
you would be wise take your work seriously and consult with
experienced people in the field.
If you need help finding
experienced advisors, drop any of us a line and we'll be glad to
assist you in connecting with competent folks.
If you build and fly
an aircraft without availing yourself of such expertise,
you are a fool. And aviation is not kind to fools.
With all that said, building and flying your own aircraft
can be one of life's truly wonderful experiences.
It certainly has been for us.
So quit stalling and take the plunge.
