Make It, Fly It
It has lately been popular to make stuff. But few have made an airplane. A great variety of homebuilt/amateur experimental aircraft can be made, some speedy, some aerobatic, some quite popular. Some folks have even made a blimp.
Before building, it would be wise to consult a professional. Powerplant options include an air cooled Volkswagen engine, diesel, and conventional small aircraft engines.
As an alternative to starting from scratch, there is restoration.
Plus, airplanes can be a fun way to fly somewhere (though some routes require advance preparation).
