Yeah, I wondered about the lawn as well, but they may have these in the ground:

Hastings Architectural: Checker Block

I'm looking at something like this for the area just in front of my house. Dirt driveway, steep and curved and would cost ~$35000-45000 to properly pave it. I thought something like this on the flat part by the house would be nice. Keep the dirt in the house down, too. The rest of it can stay dirt.

Could be, but I suspect there's more to what we're seeing than what we're seeing.

That depends on how you use the planes!

I am guessing that this person lives in some type of condo with VERY STRICT no garages allowed rules! Sometimes HOA's push people to do some very inventive things to bypass the rules and still get what they want!

Loud pipes save lives...Nah, they just sound cool.

Here's some other variations on that theme: Gridworks SBC :: HOME, Porous Paving Grids | Grass Pavers | Parking Lots | Permeable Pavement | Grass Pave, Grassy Paver Applications

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Radio control planes don't cost that much, nor do they take up a lot of space.


Oh, wait...you want to actually be IN the flying machine...

That's a mighty impressive bit of land for a condo...


but I wouldn't rule out the HOA end of that statement.

"Ride Safe, Chop Safer" Motorcycles are not unsafe. However; they are extremely unforgiving of inattention, incompetence, ignorance, and stupidity.
Dismantling, sawzalling, and rattle canning does not make a bobber.
Those are STEPS toward customizing, not customizing unto itself.

Yes I want to be in the plane. I just don't get the same rush standing on the ground watching it fly. I don't care for video games either I would much rather be driving a car then playing a race car game. I have always been an adrenaline junkie since I was a little kid though.

I would just like a nice 6 cars addition to our shop, less grass to mow and more cars and bikes to park all I need is to get hubby to go along with the idea...

yes, we own two planes, but my aircraft haven't been out of the hangar in a long long time. Got a kid in med school, business has been way too slow, and the cost of flying is 6x what it was when I learned to fly 20 years ago.

And trying to keep a 65 year old airplane and a 35 year old airplane in flying condition is not cheap. Not to mention pilot medicals, flight reviews, etc etc.

So, the planes stay in the hangar for now, and we get our need for speed kicks on motorcycles.
