Where do you go after building a car and then a plane? A helicopter. The ultimate DIY project. Helicopters are now not just the province of the super-rich. For just over £40,000 you can build a helicopter that would not look out of place in the world's most glamorous Heliparks.
A chopper os born follows the step-by-step build of fully functioning helicopter from a kit - A Rotorway Exec 162F, the worlds most successful helicopter kit. The aircraft takes more than 500 man hours to complete and we follow it from manufacture at the factory right the way through to painting and upholstery. Here we meet other amateur enthusiasts who have built and flown their own rotor craft, from kit builders to one off designers.
