According Volksplane, the VP 1 is perhaps the simplest, least expensive wood aircraft you can build. Today there is a VP1 flying in practically every country on the globe.
The Volksplane slogan is U-Build U-Fly . The photo above shows an VP-1 in Sweden.

From Aircraft Spruce:
Aircraft Spruce & Speciality is the exclusive distributor for VP-1 materials kits. The Volksplane was designed and prototyped by Bud Evans in 1968. The aircraft is inexpensive, easy to build, and fun to fly. The fuselage is all wood, with three bulkheads, four longerons, flat plywood and some vertical stiffners. Wings are wood frames covered with fabric. The only parts requiring welding are the control stick, strut ends and stabilizer horn. The only sheetmetal work is in the elevator trim tab. Over 1000 of these single planes are flying. The aircraft is ideally suited for Volkswagen engines in the 1500 to 1834 cc range. We can supply complete materials kits from stock.
