Everybody’s First Gliding Book! ($14.95 retail price) is the latest book in Bob Wander's long-established Gliding...Made Easy! series, now numbering 14 volumes in all.
Everybody’s First Gliding Book! answers the questions that newcomers ask when they discover the world of soaring. It is a comprehensive book, with well over one hundred large-format pages. There is nothing else like it in print and I am excited to publish it.
Details: 112 large-format pages. The 45 articles that comprise Everybody’s First Gliding Book! answer the questions that newcomers want to have authoritative answers for. See for yourself:
“Can an ordinary person like me learn to fly gliders?”
“Where can I go to learn to fly gliders?”
“How many lessons will it take for me to go solo the glider for the first time?”
“How much will it cost to get to solo standard in a glider?”
“What risks am I undertaking if I learn to fly?”
“What are the medical requirements to become a glider pilot?”
“I am an airplane pilot. Will my airplane skills help me in glider flight training?”
“If I get airsick, what can I do about it? Does it mean that I cannot learn to fly?”
“Are there national standards for glider pilot training? If so, where are they found?”
“What tests do I have to take to become a glider pilot?”
“What books and materials will help me to learn to fly? Where can I buy them?”
“Does the FAA know about this glider thing? Does the FAA set training standards?”
“Are gliders maintained as carefully as airplanes are required to be maintained?”
And many more...
Everybody's First Gliding Book! is both an educational tool and a recruiting tool. It gives newcomers the background knowledge they need safely to proceed into soaring.
