Summary "A remarkable collection of stories and photographs of enthusiasts who make and fly their own aircraft, some who have just started with a clean sheet of paper, a few design ideas and an overwhelming desire to fly. It provides a fascinating insight into a colourful and significant part of this countryѫs aviation scene where these budding builders and pilots often labour for years in basements, sheds, garages and hangars, knowing that their very survival depends on the finished project being made to the highest possible standard. They are spread throughout New Zealand, from the Far North to the tip of the South Island, and they embrace an equally wide range of personalities and occupations. All of them enjoy meeting the challenge of craftsmanship and perseverance needed to convert years of work into useful aircraft, and they say the satisfaction of flying something of their own creation can never be surpassed."--Publisher's website.
