How to Get Started Building the EMG-6
Join The growing list of EMG-6 builders
By becoming a member you have access to all of the construction drawings that are currently available. Although all of the drawings on the builders database are currently open source, we will work directly with each of the builders to supply technical support additional drawings and priority parts. Register builders have first priority on parts orders and some parts are not availible to non registerd builders as they are highly subsidized. The $500 Gold level registration is a very reasonable entry level registration fee that will get you started with minimal investment and commitment. By becoming a platinum member the $500 fee for registration is waived and 100% of the registration fee is applied towards the purchase of parts and kits.
The Silver Level membership is a new option which will facilitate a builder’s who would like to begin the project with a minimal investment. I remember when I was young and became interested in building airplanes. I just didn’t have the funds available, or even the facilities available, to make a commitment to building an airplane. If you fit into this category, we have an option here that will provide you with an opportunity to start building this wonderful airplane with an extremely small investment. The $500 serial number and membership fee can be paid over time with a $50 per month credit card charge.*
Gold Level Pricing $500 for Serial Number and the membership. (S/N priority) Serial Number is nonrefundable. S/N is Transferable to Platinum Level registration for $4500 using a 3% cash discount available. This membership allows for the average builder to start building the project. this gold level membership allows for entry level cost with minimal risk while still building a substantial portion of the aircraft. It also allows the membership fee to be applied towards parts and materials should the builder elect to upgrade to the Platinum level.
Platinum Level Pricing $5200 Deposit for Serial Number and a membership. 3% cash discount available. 100% of the deposit applies towards the purchase of parts or kit. This makes the serial number and membership free. Serial number is nonrefundable. Serial number is Transferable back to the Gold level with a $4500 deposit return to customer. Platinum level members have priority access to parts and customer support. This is the most cost-effective membership for those that are 100% sure that they are going to build and complete an aircraft.

The “Shop Notes” blog follows the progress as we design, build, and fly the EMG-6. This progress blog contains most of the up-to-date information about what is happening within the company and the project.
Currently, our main focus is on supplying exisiting customers that are interested in building as much of the aircraft as possible. Although we will eventually have completely pre-welded fuselage assemblies available for purchase, we are currently not delivering any of the complete fast build kits. If you are a welder or are willing to learn welding, you are exactly the builder that is ready to get started. If you are not willing or wanting to do your own welding, we recommend that you hold off on beginning the building process until we have complete fast build kits available. The objective of the entire program is to provide enough data that you could, with the right equipment, build all of the parts in your own shop. However, we know that shop capabilities and other considerations will probably reqiure purchasing parts and components pre-manufactured. We can currently supply all components to exsiting cutomers with some lead time. The big cost savings in the overall project is directly related to how much you can build yourself. Labor to manufacue parts isthe single biggest cost of the aircraft. The total materials cost for the Aircraft is less than $10,000.
