Frantisek Hadrava thought driving to work for 14 minutes was too much, so he built a plane to cut the commute by half.

Hadrava, a 45-year old locksmith from the south-western Czech village of Zdikov, took about two years of his spare time to build his Vampira, an ultralight plane based on the US-design of light planes called Mini-Max.

The plane has an open cockpit, propeller powered by a 3-cylinder engine made by Czech firm Verner, and maximum speed of 146 km an hour. It cost about 3,700 euros ($4,200) to build, Hadrava said.
