The Soaring Engine Vol Three
Volume three describes how a pilot can learn to achieve a higher
standard of performance in any of the soaring disciplines. This
entails a knowledge of speed flying techniques, an investigation
into the decision making abilities of pilots when under pressure,
some suggestions for training, and an outline of the specific
requirements for success in competition, distance or record flying.
Combined with the information set out in volume one (the basics
of using ridge and thermal lift to soaring in both flatland and
mountain terrain) and volume two (wave and convergence
systems), the trilogy aims to enable soaring pilots to achieve their
goals in any part of the sport they choose to pursue.
