He is one of the few active waka taua builders and is... responsible for the completion of more than a dozen of these waka for iwi around the country. Acknowledged as the pre-eminent holder of knowledge relating to waka culture, he is frequently consulted for his expert opinion. A real outdoorsman, Hec turned his hand to many pursuits, leading him to set up his own bridge construction business in his twenties. His entrepreneurial and leadership skills along with his tribal and tikanga knowledge have led to his involvement in iwi activities as well as in organising Waitangi commemorations, kapa haka, ocean-going voyages, and waka wananga to pass on his knowledge to the next generation.

            Women have always been involved with aviation and this book examines the roles of British and American women throughout the history of flight. It will highlight the earliest female aviators and women working in wartime munition factories, as well as the trailblazers of the inter-...war period such as Amy Johnson and Amelia Earhart. The experience of women in aviation during the Second World War, including those flying with the Air Transport Auxiliary and the American Women Airforce Service Pilots, will also be examined. The post-war years are also covered and emphasise the growth in participation by women in both civil and military spheres of aviation. By the last decades of the twentieth century, women had progressed even further, undertaking many of the jobs previously reserved for men, including space flight and combat flying.
