RV-14 Build Journal

True happiness comes from the joy of deeds well done, the zest of creating things new
— Antoine de Saint-Exupery

The summary below highlights my journey in building an airplane from a kit (vansaircraft.com). I probably don’t know what I’m getting myself into but the journey has it’s own rewards. The intent of this journal is for me to record the progress so that I can prove to the FAA that did in fact assemble at least 51% of this airplane. In addition, I hope that it can serve as a way to communicate the process to friends and family.
