Format: Paperback
If you are learning to fly this book is a must, it is not written as a replacement for being taught in a school. But it will advance your understanding and knowledge about this fantastic sport. I bought this book just after I gained my CP and it helped be go on to do my first XC.

Clear and concise book written in the style of a technical manual but with some life in it too. Excellent coverage in a very concise format.

Format: Paperback
As a beginner, I found this easily the best freeflight manual around. As well as excellent descriptive text, this is supported by very good and clear photographs, most of which are colour. Covers broader subject matter than other books I've read including weather, usual PG flying stuff, including what to do if your canopy collapses, safety, exams and advanced flying.

Format: Paperback
I am a complete beginner and expected to read a book for beginners but this is not so! When you read a sentence "the harness should be correctly fitted" it tells you nothing! Of course items should be correctly fitted but how? No explanation is given and so it goes on with little detailed explanation in other areas. What about a detailed list of items required? The book starts off talking about the weather and aerodynamics, we know this is important but what a yawn to get one interested in the sport! Why limit it only to the UK flying conditions, we are part of Europe and lots of flyers want to expand their horizons? I'm sorry but in my opinion this is not written with the complete beginner in mind.
