Volumes one and two investigates the nature of soaring conditions and how to exploit them, and volume three outlines how a pilot may achieve excellence in the sport of cross country soaring.
Volume four is about the equipment.
Gliding is an unusual blend of technology and artistry, and today’s sailplanes are aerodynamically refined and optimised.
Current avionics suites are equally sophisticated, with powerful processors, moving maps, complex user interfaces, electronic conspicuity systems and internet connectivity.This high performance comes at the cost of significantly increased complexity.The aim of this book is to review some of the important features of modern composite airframes, explain and clarify the latest developments in avionics, and show pilots how to operate their glider and instrument suite to maximum effect.Intended for pilots at all experience levels
