Gliding training has three stages. These are basic pre-solo training in a two-seater glider until your first solo flight, advanced training until obtaining your licence or equivalent, and for those who chose to, further advanced training in specific skills like cross-country flights, aerobatic flying, mountain flying, cloud flying, taking your friends and family flying and eventually becoming an instructor. This manual supports a pilots training from first lesson through to a licence standard. All student pilots and instructors will enjoy the informal style as the manual guides us through the first steps in what we hope will be a long and enjoyable gliding career.
