The Soaring Engine volumes 1 and 2 explain how the sun, wind and terrain combine to produce rising air for the soaring pilots to exploit. Volume 3 looks at flying techniques, managing our brains in the cockpit, how to practise and competition theory. 


The Soaring Engine volume 1 - 'Ridge, Thermal and Mountain Soaring'

In this volume, you will see how the wind flows over and around hills, ridges and mountains, how thermals form and evolve, the patterns that ridge and thermal activity create in the air and how to use the lift produced both in flat terrain and in mountains.

Illustrated with clear simple diagrams, this book is a primer for soaring pilots flying anything from a paraglider to high performance sailplanes.

 

The Soaring Engine volume 2 - 'Wave and Convergence'

The first volume covered the basis of using ridge and thermal lift to soar in both flatland and mountain terrain.

Volume 2 goes on to describe the more advanced techniques required when flying in convergence or wave systems.

Illustrated with clear simple diagrams, this book is a primer for soaring pilots flying anything from a paraglider to high performance sailplanes.

The Soaring Engine volume 3 - 'High Performance Flying'

Flying techniques are looked at in detail, covering aspects such as 'Speed flying in the real world', Thermal and route selection and specific aspects of the flight such as cruising, climbing and the final glide. It also looks at how we use our brains in flight and covers techniques to improve some of the most common pitfalls. How to practise and competition flying is also looked at in detail.

You may have read other books on how to fly gliders fast, however none of them are as up-to-date with modern techniques, equipment and perceptions as this one.

The Soaring Engine 1,2 & 3
Thursday, 6 August 2020  | 

Still in lockdown in Scotland, and I am not solo, so unable to fly at all, so I purchased these three books to read up, and broaden my knowledge. I initially thought that they would be far too complicated for a newbie, however, they are really excellent books, written in an easy style, which is informative, understandable, and well illustrated - without being complicated. `G`, has a great ability to communicate technical subject matter, without totally baffling the reader - the simple drawings matching the content are very explanatory.... As a ab initio myself I would say that these books are definitely for all skill levels from beginners up, as there is a lot of really good stuff over the three volumes. As the larger topics are broken down in to small sections, I feel that these books will be ideal to keep referring back to as I gain more experience and can put theory in to practice - and try to get better !!
