This volume is for everyone who has ever dreamt of escaping to thousands of feet above the ground, with a view stretching to the horizon, and barely a whisper to disturb the moment. The book guides you through how to realize that dream and goes on to explore the many opportunities the sport offers. Topics covered include: a history of the sport; an introduction to gliding clubs, getting started and what to expect; an insight into how gliders fly and detailed instruction on how to fly them; sections on launching, the cockpit, safety and weather forecasts, and finally ideas for cross-country and competitive flying and tips for owning a glider.Biografía del autor:
