The MakerPlane Shop just opened today. For those who don’t know, the MakerPlane Project is an open-source aviation project to enable people to build safe, affordable light aircraft using CNC mills and 3D printers.  The MakerPlane will also include state-of-the-art digital flight instruments and displays running open-source software.

We probably won’t see MakerRocketships soon. Companies like Virgin Galactic and XCOR have worked for years to get where they are. It hasn’t been easy, even with a full-time staff and venture funding. Being first is always hard, though. Who knows what we might see in 10 or 20 years?
