Episode 51 - Andy Draper - Light Aircraft Association



Today I’m off down to Turweston Aerodrome to meet Andy Draper of the Light Aircraft Association. Andy is the design engineer with the LAA and having joined from kitplane company, Europa, he now looks after the modification work for LAA aircraft but also oversees the ongoing airworthiness of all the approved types. I was interested in finding out what the process was for building your own aircraft so who better to ask than Andy. If you recognize Andy’s photo on the web site that’s because he was involved in the TV show ‘A Plane Is Born’ some years ago, helping Mark Evans build his Europa kit plane.
