It contains material every airframe mechanic must know in the first year of his apprenticeship, but it will be of inestimable value to the many persons who participate in the expanding field of "Build Your Own Pane," even the best kits require some mechanical know-how and the proper use of the proper tools
No book reaches seven editions without having proved of value to an audience of significant size. The two expert authors describe with the aid of very clear line drawings and illustrations the nature of the tools and how to employ them (also how not!); they describe the nature of materials (not fabrics), and fixation devices (screws, bolts, pins, etc.). To this is added "plumbing, and electrical systems, and then non-destructive testing (NDT) and corrosion.
Altogether there is a wealth of primary material which every pilot and aircraft owner should be familiar with, and one day might save him from unnecessary forced landings.
