You Want To Build And
Fly A What???
|"Dick Starks' tribulations and loss of
innocence are your gain. His mixture of humor, philosophy, and technical stuff offers a
unique insight into the slightly warped mind of a dedicated aircraft homebuilder."
-Dave Martin, editor of KITPLANES
"Dick has truly caught the flavor of learning to fly as well as the trials and
tribulations of building an airplane . . . with his great sense of humor adding some
||"This is a great story of affordable
personal aviation seldom told outside of the sometimes tight little circle of the
Experimental Aircraft Association aero-nuts."
-Frank Kingston Smith, author of Weekend Pilot
"He bumbles, fumbles, and
stumbles at even the most simple tasks, yet lives. Worse than that, he has the utter lack
of shame to sit down and reveal it all in this book. . . For all his confessions of fear
and humble bumbling, the man has the most direct thinking process, understands what he

needs an airport bum like Dick Starks. For the days when the flying is bad but
the adult beverage is good, no one spins an outrageous talemore or less based in
fact, or things that have been shown a picture of factlike Dick. Come to think of
it, not many can get away with using the word Fokker in polite company,

youll discover yourself wanting to build your own Nieuport so you can join the Dawn
Patrol and be a part of the act. Fokkers At Six OClock will do
thatand make you laugh out loud. Sounds like a hit to me.
