Whether you are already involved in building an airplane, seriously considering it, or just curious about what’s involved, here’s answers to many of the questions that come up.

In this book, the authors take the reader through the steps involved, from considerations and decisions on building to the information gathering stages; through purchases and construction activities to the paperwork, inspections, and technicalities of making an airplane airworthy and legal to fly. Follow along through the initial flights, final checkouts, and the rewarding adventures in the air. And finally, learn about condition inspections and routine maintenance. Take a trip from the first rivet, to the first flight, and through the first five years of flying.
