A man in the Czech Republic spent two years building his own airplane just to cut seven minutes from his commute.Frantisek Hadrava thought driving to work for 14 minutes was too much, so he built an plane to cut the commute by half.
The 45-year-old Frantisek Hadrava spent two years of his time and 4.000 $ to build his plane, an ultralight plane made almost entirely of wood, which is based on the U.S.design of light planes called Mini-Max.
When flying to work he lands his plane in a field next to his place of work and parks in the company carpark, taking up about four parking spaces.
The flight takes less than 7 minutes and he insists the plane is cheaper than if he were to travel by car. The commute is 15 km away from his home by road.
