{detailed description}This book provides a comprehensive guide to gliding. It includes the latest ideas on this increasingly popular sport and should be of particular interest to the pupils and instructors at the many new clubs now forming all over the world. The first section will help the beginner who so often finds that his -gliding instructor has too little time to answer all his queries. It explains everything the pupil needs to know before flying solo. Section two will help the inexperienced pilot to use the glider more efficiently. It includes chapters on flying safely in high winds, aerotows and very full, practical explanations of stalling and spinning and on turning efficiently. The last section deals with cross-country flying, cloud flying and the various ways in which the glider pilot can make longer flights and qualify for the highest international awards. The author is the Chief Flying Instructor at the Lasham Gliding Centre.
