I didn't include my wife in the list of "builders", as she's made it abundantly clear she's a spectator in this. She wants the freedom to heckle. (Although she has done a wonderful job sewing upholstery!)

I've got way too much time on MS flight simulator.

My dad's a retired Army helicopter pilot and still-current tinkerer, so I grew up rebuilding VW engines in the garage. When you're exposed to that at 14, it gives you the confidence (false?) to try things like building your own airplane.
