Awesome book. This book helped a lot on my journey from freshly qualified Club Pilot with red ribbon and a lot to learn, right through to my first thermalling flights. Packed with great advice that saved me time, stopped me wasting money on kit I didn't need, and really helped me to progress towards a Pilot rating and my first XC.
