Man From Ethiopia Builds Plane Using Second Hand Parts & YouTube

September 25, 2015

In one of the poorest nations in the world, a man named Asmelash Zerefu took his dream and gave it wings…literally!

This bright kid always wanted to fly but in such a poor nation, never had the means to be a pilot and was rejected from aviation school.


So he did it the only way he could: build his own. He traveled to markets and scraped together parts. He poured over FAA documents, books, and Youtube. Building the plane became his life.

Are you a pilot? How hard is this feat to do? Let us know in the comments!
