A Benefit of Building

One of the real advantages of building your own airplane is the opportunity to customize. Amateur builders often have a choice between several engines and propellers, a rainbow of paint schemes, and a variety of options when it comes to avionics. Typically the Glasair Sportsman is a glass-paneled airplane with panels manufactured by Oregon-based Advanced Flight Systems.

The company makes three high-resolution LCD screens ranging from 8.4 inches (diagonally) to 6.5 inches, all of which can be configured to operate as an EFIS or an engine monitor or both at the same time.

Advanced Flight Systems uses an uncertified version
