As the official manual of the world famous British Gliding Association, this book is recommended reading for all pilots and instructors. Highly illustrated and designed to be user-friendly, it takes the user through the key theories of flight. 'Must-have' scientific information is highlighted which, together with the less critical material, provides an authoritative resource which can be studied or dipped into as required. Making complex topics comprehensible and including 400 illustrations to enhance the explanatory material, Gliding explains how and why gliders work.
