9780811715034: Sailplanes & soaring;: The beginner's lift into discovering the wonders and world of silent flight,

An excerpt from inside the dust jacket:

This guide to the sky introduces men and women of all ages to this freest sport of all -- less expensive than one would think, uncluttered by crowds, cooperative, ecologically safe (no motors). Originating in Europe, and now international in scope, its history and particular popularity among all ages is described here.

As with any sport, getting started right is half the battle, and this book provides information on clubs and schools, where to write for information, word about the Soaring Society of America, choosing an instructor, costs, certification, and finding the best soaring facility. A detailed trip around an airfield and the engrossing details of a typical student-instructor flight tells novices what to expect--how soaring flights are conducted, the safety precautions taken, regulations observed, about assembling the trailered sailplane, launching it, parking it, typical club soaring schedules.

The romance of the sport has a lot to do with winging freely on thermals and updrafts, but fee-on-the-ground learners will welcome clues here on:

  - knowing the sailplane
  - controlling the sailplane
  - flying the sailplane
  - using wind and clouds
  - learning through crewing

From the first inkling of interest to that breathless first moment of silent flight, all the things to learn, know, and do when starting out are covered in this down-to-earth reference to a sky-high sport...complete with informative illustrations especially selected with novice interest in mind.
