A young Karachi Boy just flied an airplane made by himself

Arsalan ali, a 23-years old young boy from Landhi district of Karachi has flown an aircraft which is made by himself. In a piece of surprising news, Arsalan Ali made a Micro Light Aircraft from meagerly available resources.

The aircraft has 230cc engine as is capable of flying at moderate altitudes. It took Arsalan 5 years to develop the Air Craft. Arsalan says he can create and fly a more sophisticated plane if the government helps him. 

Arsalan Ali is a Generator Technician and has studied at the vocational institute in Karachi. He designed the plane and built it using whatever supplies he could get his hands on. He also spent all his savings on his project. He used to work as a Generator Technician at the day and work on the plane at night.

Arsalan tested the plane in an open field away from city’s hustle-bustle. He believes that his plane can be used in Agriculture, assorted Aviation services, Festivals etc.
