EAA Flying and Glider Manual Five-Volume Set
In the late 1920s, the publishers of Modern Mechanics and Inventions created an annual booklet that came to be known as the Flying and Glider Manual. Published from 1929 to 1933, these annuals contained articles of interest to aircraft homebuilders, including detailed drawings and plans. This set collects all five volumes, from 1929-1933.
The 1929 EAA Flying Manual contains information on flying lessons, plus details on building the Heath Super Parasol, Russell-Henderson Light Monoplane and an easy-to-build glider.
