Brian Cosgrove was a hero of Microlight circles for many years. Hos range fo books were the bibles for Microlight students and pilots for many years and they continue to be so.
This book is the ultimate study book for those planning on doing their Microlight NPPL. it forms a study planner for the exams and an ongoign wuick reference guide for the more experienced pilot. Every instructor I know has one. Every student pilot I know either has one, has ordered one or wants to order one.
It would be useful to have it in a smaller format for easier walk-around portabilitywith the rest of my fligh gear. That might constrain the graphics and make it more difficult to use, so probably not fair criticism.
The ultimate guide for Microlight pilots, with a range of other specialist books mentioned within by the same author. 5/5

A must for all student and qualified microlight pilots, pitched at a beginners level and easy to understand for the novice student is a great supplement for someone learning to fly and should be your first book, in conjunction with qualified instruction will be very useful in getting to grips with the technicalities of flying, it is well structured and an interesting read I was a total novice to flying and I found this book very useful. It may be necessary to check out future editions based on any changes to future aviation law, but this book concentrates alot on the flying and even earlier editions can be quite informative.
