Peter Garrison is an American journalist and amateur aircraft designer/builder. He was born in Los Angeles, California, in 1943, and received a BA in English from Harvard College in 1965. In 1968–1973, while living in Tarzana, California, he designed and built an all-metal, two-seat, single-engine low-wing monoplane. The design was influenced by the T-18 of John Thorp and the PL-2 of Ladislao Pazmany, both California airplane designer/builders.

This is the book that started me off in building my own airplane. It is a beautifully written introduction to homebuilt aircraft by one of the foremost avition writers, focusing on a handful of common designs and discussing their design, construction and use. It doesn't try to be a "how-to" guide, nor does it wander off into technical details.

This is the book that started me off in building my own airplane. It is a beautifully written introduction to homebuilt aircraft by one of the foremost avition writers, focusing on a handful of common designs and discussing their design, construction and use. It doesn't try to be a "how-to" guide, nor does it wander off into technical details. Rather, it gives a good sense of the feelings involved in building one of these aircraft. After all, nobody builds their own aircraft for practical reasons. They build their own aircraft for the pure love of it!
Accompanying the text are some of the finest aviation photographs I have ever seen. This book would be worth the price for the photographs alone.
It seems like the number of books introducing homebuild aircraft has grown exponentially in the last ten years. Most of these books, however, tend to either gloss over the issues or descend into the sort of technical details that would be appropriate for a more advanced text but seem merely pedantic in a laymans introduction. While a bit dated by now, this book remains the best primer on the subject that I have ever read.

I've really enjoyed Peter Garrison's aviation writing so I bought this book. Didn't pay much at all for it and got good value, just didn't get much book. His writing is great as always but this was mainly, well written, captions
