doesnt Do You
A great book for those who are keen to learn the subtle skills required to excel in flying gliders, or "Sailplanes" (aircraft without engines). I only mention this for those looking to buy this as a gift - as many of my non-flying friends give me a blank stre when they hear I am going to be flying a "glider" on any specific day. Sometimes I suspect they think I'm jumping off a hill with a card board box and temporary wings affixed to me.

This book is not just for the novice glider pilot. In fact many subjects go well beyond beginner skills and delve well into the type of knowledge and observational skills required to advance into competitive soaring. My background is professional aviation and I got into soaring for a fun past time and challenge. This book was what kept me learning after I qualified for my commercial glider add on license. I recommend this book for anyone who is always looking to excel in whatever they do. This book will get you thinking in a way that will help you establish yourself in anything from simple and safe recreational soaring to higher level competition or simply as a tool for someone who is competitive enough with themselves to want to be the best they can be.
While some of the language is dated and in "British Engilsh" this book is a classic for the new soaring pilot.
grand star
Pigott has authored various texts on the subject or gliding/soaring and I have found them all to be useful.
This particular one is throughly detailed and definative. Everything you could possibly wish to know about gliding is within and it makes a handy companion to Pigott's books aimed at the student pilot.
This book is simple to read and understand and the writing style is a pleasure to follow, which makes following it so much easier. It reads like a good novel and I found myself just wanting to read the next page for more and more information. The reader is left with a thorough understanding of how the gliders fly, the manoeuvres and good airmanship.
After gliding in the UK I now PPL it in the US. This book makes me want to be back at the Long Mynd!
Since originally published in 1958, Piggott's "Gliding" has been acclaimed a "bible" of the sport of soaring. It would hardly be overstated to suggest that one's years of interest in the sport could be gauged by how many editions of the book one owned. An acclaimed pilot and instructor, Piggott presents both the fundamentals and the complexities of motorless flight in a manner that engages while instructing both the novice and the experienced glider pilot. Replete with excellent illustrations (I counted 120) that complement the clear concise text the work is comprehensive in its scope while organized in focused bite-sized chapters. It can be read cover to cover or by topic of interest with no loss in continuity. Compact but chock-full with a beautiful book cover to boot - an exceptional book, highly recommended.
Good book, excellent service from vendor.
