Sportplane Construction Techniques: A Builder’s Handbook
By Tony Bingelis

The ideas, tips, suggestions and methods described in this book are gleaned from the hundreds of successful builders who used them in the first place...that's where most good ideas come from anyway. All I have done is selected some of the most useful of these ideas and techniques and detailed them for your use. If some of the material triggers a better method or idea for you that is the way it should be.

This book does not take the place of a good set of plans for the airplane of your choice. It does, however, help clarify construction details that may have been ignored or slighted in your plans. It may even help you in developing your instinct to solve construction problems through logical reasoning as opposed to other approaches that in the long run, are harmful.
