You will usually have to buy a kit because the FAA will have to certify the aircraft and it's is hard to get that if you don't use a kit. Some kits have a 2 week to taxi program in which you go into a class where you build your plane in two weeks. Most kits cost around $100,000 to $150,000 but I would look around not only for the right price but for the right kind of aircraft.

Why is aluminum used in alloys used to make aircraft?

Aluminum alloys are used to make aircraft because they are much stronger than steel pound for pound. Another advantage is that aluminum is corrosion resistant. Aluminum is very lightweight for its strength. This makes it an ideal material for airplanes where every extra pound of weight means one (MORE)

Could helium be pumped into voids in aircraft to make them lighter?

Yes, but this would be impractical and could pose many safety hazards. Pumping helium into the various nooks & crannys of the airframe would require not only that those voids be sealable, but would also require the hardware needed to pump in the gas and safely vent it for maintenance. This added (MORE)

Which alloy is used in making the parts in aircraft?

Aluminum-magnesium alloys are used in making parts in aircraft. Aluminum-magnesium alloys are lighter than other aluminum alloys and much less flammable than alloys that contain a very high percentage of magnesium. . Aluminum alloys are alloys in which aluminum (Al) is the predominant metal. The t (MORE)

Why is sodium not used to make aircraft?

Sodium is a highly unstable and reactive substance, which reacts badly with any moisture; whether it be in the air or on the ground. This means any aircraft made of sodium would likely explode (literally) before it could even take off. Not that anyone could finish making it first. Also, sodium (MORE)

What light wood do you use to make a model aircraft?

When does a supersonic aircraft make a sonic boom?

This occurs at Mach 1, which is the speed of sound. At this speed the sound waves traveling out in front of the aircraft become compressed into a single intense front or "shock wave" which forms a cone shape with the point of the cone on the aircraft's nose, and spreading out behind the aircraft. If (MORE)

How you can make small aircraft?

Making an aircarft is not easy. It takes time and effort. First you need to find what are all the parts and other things required to build it. Then you have to build it. Only experienced persons can build even small aircrafts like aeronautical engineers, airplane mechanics etc..

Why use aluminium instead of glass for making aircraft bodies?

Many reasons mainly that aluminum is lighter and is flexible and will not shatter like glass. That being said, aircraft bodies have been made of composite materials like fiberglass (or carbon fiber, or occasionally Kevlar) which is glass cloth with a epoxy binder. Also Plywood (the spruce goose) (MORE)
