This newly published volume contains listings for hundreds of light aircraft, microlights, kit planes and rotorcraft (including a short history, weights, dimensions and photograph for each type), many of which cannot be found in the usual aircraft directories.

Many more light aircraft types, both old and new have been added for this edition and previous entries updated.
Mr Armour has kept to the original aims of including only types that still exist and may be seen in the UK - flying mainly, others static and some waiting to appear from long periods of storage and restoration.
The type classification gets more complicated, with VLAs, SLAs and 450kg microlights. As even the experts are still haggling over which type belongs in which category Mr Armour has largely stuck to his old classifications.

A word from Des Armour
"I wanted a book on small, private aeroplanes - there were plenty of books on airliners, military and business jets, but nothing much on my sort of aeroplane; the sort you find around the small airfields and strips - and at the various air shows and rallies.
So, by dint of a lot of drawing, rooting out information and photographs, this book came about.
I am much indebted to my co-author, Edwin Shackleton, who is not only a mine of aeronautical information but has a place in the Gusiness Book of Records as having flown in the greatest number of aircraft types - 700+ at the latest count!
