Understanding the Sky: A Sport Pilot's Guide To Flying Conditions Reviews

Essential reading for any knowledge-seeking paragliding, hang gliding or sailplane pilot! on 07/06/2010
  • Star Rating
Understanding the Sky by Dennis Pagen is a brilliant flying-weather book which is absolutely crammed with masses of indispensable meteorological information for all soaring pilots to learn about and understand. Essential reading for any knowledge-seeking paragliding, hang gliding or sailplaning pilot, Understanding the Sky is very well written - and beautifully illustrated - by someone who clearly has a great deal of knowledge on the subject of flying weather, and is also a highly experienced soaring pilot in their own right. Understanding the Sky is highly recommended for any gliding pilot (whether paraglider, hang glider or sailplane) who is serious about learning all about soaring flight and making the most out of their chosen flying machine.
