The History of NZ Aviation
Author: Ross Ewing & Ross Macpherson
Format: Hardcover
Condition: Good

This jointly-written history is the culmination of five years work and marks the contribution of countless New Zealanders to the cause of aviation, both military and civil, at home and abroad, and both in the air and on the ground. Their combined achievements have made the writing of this book possible. It is a general text on New Zealand aviation, and is aimed not just at those with a passing interest in the subject in the hope that it will stimulate them further. The idea of compiling a joint civil-military history of New Zealand aviation first arose in the late 1970s, at a time when New Zealand aviation seemed to becoming apart at the seams. Our concern at this development was one of the main reasons for pressing ahead with what turned out to be a massive project. Other reasons were that from an early age we both had become very interested in flying and in aircraft of all kinds and wished to share this interest. A genuine and careful effort has been made to put events of the past, both good and bad and in true perspective, and to account for the present in a way that will, hopefully, prevent the mistakes of the past from being made again. This pragmatism is today very much the essence of New Zealand aviation.
