Australian Gliding Knowledge

The purpose of this book is to provide a reference for the kind of knowledge which you will need as you progress through your flying. It is a supplement to your training, from the basic reasons why a glider is able to fly in the first place to the meteorology which enables it to soar. It also covers items, such as air legislation, basic navigation and use of radio. However, the primary training documents that must be used are the Trainer Guides and Pilot Guides.
