"Only the most vital and salient features of construction and operation have been included in the chapters devoted to man-carrying machines. For, while it is quite within the powers of any boy to construct a real and practical machine, it is is more advisable for them to confine their efforts to model machines and gliders until thoroughly familiar with the principles and peculiarities of aeronautics."
