KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a beautiful piece of book making and is sure to appeal to the air-minded of all ages. It is the best coverage of the subject of gliders and glider training background; substantial amount of space given to a clearcut analysis of the whys and hows, the controls, and how they operate, the launching and flying of gliders, soaring for beginners, problems of wind, currents and clouds, the use of instruments. Then the author goes on to the use of gliders in war, the qualities for that branch of the service, the special training. There is a section on building gliders, on rules and regulations and clubs.
