Soaring combines advanced technology, physical dexterity and the fascination of a complicated puzzle. Each flight involves self-discovery and self-mastery, and affords great pleasure while stretching physical and mental processes to the limit.

It is a rapidly evolving sport which still gives opportunities for great experiment and new ideas. The authors have taken a foremost part in the development of British gliding, and this book is the result of many years close co-operation in operating gliders in many countries. Their object is to discus fully the modern glider and the technique of using it.

In its first form, their book THE SOARING PILOT quickly became a standard text. Now it is so thoroughly replanned as to deserve a new title. Full account has been taken of developments in every sphere of gliding with particular emphasis on competition flying and its equipment and techniques.

There are entirely new chapters on Flight Limitations, Circling Technique, Wave Soaring, Championship Flying and Physiological Considerations; new Appendices include Compass Swinging, Radio Notes, Task Setting, Rules of the Air.

Undoubtedly one of the most comprehensive yet lively manuals of flying the exists.
