Finding Help

As you progress through the building and flight testing of your homebuilt EXPERIMENTAL aircraft, it is imperative that you seek the advice and counsel of those that have gone before you. Having the humility to do so may prevent you from making a silly, costly, or even FATAL mistake. The Quickie Builders Association STRONGLY recommends that you attend many of the fly-ins that are hosted throughout the year and speak with current builders and flyers of the design you are working on. You can find the most up to date information about fly-ins on the QBA EVENTS page.

If you are unable to attend a fly-in, please contact one (or more) of the experienced Tandem Wing builders and flyers below.

Q Technical Advisers:

The following people are willing to provide technical advice concerning your creation. They are not necessarily Government sanctioned Airworthiness Inspectors, but they are successful builders and pilots. You should listen to them carefully, and decide for yourself if your creation is ready to fly. Again, they are not a substitute for SOUND JUDGEMENT.

Q Flight Counselors:

The following people are willing to give rides in their aircraft and evaluate your piloting skills. They are not necessarily Flight Instructors, but they are experienced in the plane you are contemplating flying. Please take their advice seriously. However there is no substitute for SOUND JUDGEMENT on your part. YOU are ultimately responsible for determining if you are ready and QUALIFIED to fly your creation.
