Soaringby Phyllis J. Perry
The books in the highly praised First Book series provide basic facts on subjects in the social studies, the sciences, sports, and practical and fine arts. An inviting format, lively text, and interesting illustrations make these books especially popular with young readers. Each book is indexed and, where appropriate, includes a glossary, maps, further reading, and bibliography.
This introduction to soaring covers the basics for pilot, passenger, and spectator: what gliders look like; how the instruments and controls work; and how to train, get licensed, and join a sailplaning crew.
