Ken Stewart started gliding in 1972 and by 1976 held an Instructor's Rating. In 1982 he became National Coach to the British Gliding Association, a post he held for six years before becoming an airline pilot. As National Coach he was involved in all aspects of the sport, including the training of instructors, and cross-country and competition training. He is the holder of the FAI Diamond Badge.Review:
It is, unusually for a textbook, a good read, punctuated with anecdotes and a sense of humour. Above all, Ken reminds us that gliding is, and should always remain, fun. * Flyer magazine * Why do I recommend it? It is clear, concise, comprehensive, informative, and maybe will have saved my life * Vintage Glider Club *
