My hand riveter wouldn't handle airplane rivets. They are tough to pop!
Which is how you want the rivets holding the wing skins on to act, eh?
Even if you have a pneumatic riveter, you still need a good quality hand riveter to build an aluminum airplane. There are lots of spots where there's room for a hand riveter, but not the power tool. And there are plenty of people who build the whole plane using only a the hand riveter to set all the blind ("pop") rivets.
There are a lot of people here who bad-mouth the rivets on their trailers, btw, many of whom argue stainless-steel screws and nuts work better. I have to agree there are times I think screws and nuts are a better solution, but I would never want to fly in an airplane that's held together exclusively by screws and nuts instead of rivets. A properly sized, properly set blind rivet will never unscrew, never come loose. I can't say that about screws.
