the Best Pilots
"The Art of Gliding" is enhanced by contributions from notable glider pilots. Baptiste Innocent, who flew an FAI triangle over the Mediterranean to Corsica, and Gordon Boettger, who flew 3,059 km in the wave updrafts of North America's Sierra Nevada in 2023, are among them. In addition, Werner Luidolt's review of the last Barron Hilton Cup and Benni Bachmaier's eventful journey to the Matterhorn are included in the book, along with other exciting stories by Clemens Ceipek, Bert Schmelzer, Rudi Schlesinger, and Erich Lemmerer.
Outstanding and Comprehensive
The book stands out for its high-quality, environmentally friendly printing and paper selection - a graphically appealing and timeless design that is pleasing to the eye. It has 402 pages, is bilingual in German and English, and is published in a generous 225 by 310 mm format.
"The Art of Gliding" by Simon Lemmerer is a motivating read for glider pilots, mountain and aviation enthusiasts, and anyone who enjoys the freedom and adventure of flying.
