Default Schmetterling Aviation - the book

My second book went on sale on Amazon today. This one is about the three years that I spent building my RV-12.

It is not a how-to book. It is about the experience of building my RV-12.

It shares the good, the bad, and the ultimate joy of having built it and the equal joy of finally getting to fly it.

I wrote this book for the person that I was before I assembled my kit. I knew that I wanted to build a kit, but I didn't know if I was capable of doing it. I didn't know what kind of skills it would require, and I didn't know if I had the skills to do it.

Along the way I learned what I was capable of, what I was incapable of, and I made some great new friends. I learned about tools that I had never heard of, and I learned how to use them.

In short, this is the story of how building my airplane changed my life.

Sample Chapter: Chapter 2: Why an RV-12?

Sample Chapter: Chapter 3: Preparation

Thumbs up

Dave let me read a rough draft of this before it "went to press" and it was highly enjoyable. Thanks for posting this Dave!

Yes it will. For some reason Amazon treats the Kindle version as a completely separate book, so I have to go through the entire publishing routine again. It should be available in a day or two.
