CALGARY THE HOTBED OF CANADIAN HOMEBUILDING ACTIVITY 1958-1980
From the earliest homebuilts allowed by a hesitant DOT bureaucracy many of these Calgarians
became repeat builders, and their airplanes became more sophisticated and challenging to build and to fly.
A power point presentation featuring many historical photos recently unearthed of the early homebuilt airplanes
and skilled homebuilders in the Calgary Ultra Light Aircraft Association. This association became EAA Chapter 318.
