This has become the standard text for novice glider pilots and for their instructors. It provides an all-round picture of the sport, and is concerned not only with instructions but also with any difficulties and problems a newcomer may experience. The author explains clearly the techniques of gliding, how to learn them, and also how they should be taught. In particular, he stresses the importance of good communication between instructor and pupil. This edition contains the latest information concerning flying the circuit and learning to land, as well as a new chapter on winch launching.
