Hope its the ESAP.
Experimental Scratchbuilt Aviation Pilots
The Vans guys won't be interested probably. Just the scratch
builders. "Homebuilt" sounds so dang hokey to me.
Plenty of guys start in a

It might behoove you to research the Canard Aviators
forum archives. You'll find disillusionment with EAA has been growing at a
