From the back cover: "Almost as soon as new pilots get their "wings," they begin to dream of owning their own planes. With the lowest price for a new airplane over $20,000, many pilots feel they are resigned to dreaming about ownership. Don't despair! It is still possible to own your own airplane without going bankrupt. The secret is to refurbish an older, fabric covered plane such as the Aeronca Champ, Taylorcraft, or any of the Pipers built before 1960. Many of these planes are still around and in restorable condition, with some priced as low as $4,000! Clearly, fulfilling your dream of small plane ownership is no longer a fantasy, and this book shows you how to own your own aircraft now!"
