125 pages of full colour, illustrated by fantastic pictures and a few diagrams. Within this book I hope to inspire you to move on to your own gliding adventure!

Who’s this book for?

Anyone who has mastered the mechanics of flying a glider, and wants to develop their soaring skills beyond flying circuits. Even experienced pilots and instructors may glean some knowledge from these pages.

Overview:

Many people will assume that having an adventure in a glider relies on experience, an uncanny feel for the sky and perhaps a little magic. In fact, there is very little magic fairy dust involved. What gliding really asks of its participants is to take part in a journey. That journey is not only about the techniques you learn along the way, but especially the confidence you will develop as you learn those techniques. That well-founded confidence is what will ultimately take you on adventures that you will never forget.

That’s why I try to explain in simple, manageable chunks, how to gain that skill and confidence and how to continually discover new horizons – literally! I don’t use many diagrams or even much detailed theory. I try to explain techniques using photos of things and stories of flights that I have picked up in my twenty-five years learning this sport.

Beautifully produced with excellent photos and a real quality fell to it. Easy to read with clear guidance and explanations on how to improve post solo. Worth the money.

Most accessible gliding book Iíve read

This was definitely money well spent. Fresh, lively explanations that read like your favourite instructor is explaining something over a relaxed coffee in the clubhouse. Too many gliding manuals are dull and dry!
