The Soaring Pilot's Manual advances the reader from elementary flying to confident soaring by clearly and precisely explaining the basic soaring mechanisms and techniques. Explanatory diagrams illustrate the text throughout, making a complicated subject simple to understand. Having covered the first steps, the book progresses to cross-country flying and the final section contains exercises that will be found useful for any glider pilot wishing to improve his ability and qualifications. The latest technology, such as GPS navigation and instrument systems is covered.

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 *
