Introduction by Bob Wander

This glider flight-training manual provides you with a clear picture of the decision-making skills and flight maneuvers you must master to become a competent soaring pilot.

Learning to fly well is a big job. As with many big jobs, the best way to accomplish it is to break it down into a series of little jobs, so that you can concentrate on one job at a time. This book does that for you. I have organized the book so that each section treats a specific area of flight training. Within each section, not only is a big job divided into lots of little jobs, but the little jobs are presented in progressive order. Structuring each section in this way provides you with a step-by-step approach to building your flying skills. It also affords you the opportunity to look ahead and prepare for your next lesson before you get into the glider.

In each lesson, you learn the objective, why the objective is important for you to learn, and how your instructor will present the material to you. Most lessons also list common student errors, so that you will be forewarned against them... as well as not too discouraged if you find yourself temporarily frustrated by them. Finally, each lesson contains a descriptive completion standard, so that you can measure and record your progress, and take justifiable pride in your accomplishments.

When I was learning to fly gliders, no book like this was available. I often wished for one. I hope this book helps you make your dream of motorless flight come true.
