The Pilot Handbook is the British Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association’s (BHPA‘s) standard textbook.
The standard on paragliding and hang gliding, this textbook is the go-to reference manual for every pilot learning to fly in the UK.
It takes you from first steps to leaving the hill and flying cross country using thermals to stay aloft.
With lots of advice on what gear to use, what type of glider to learn on and to progress, information on airspace, weather, safety and the technical aspects of flight, it is an important must-have for the bookshelf, especially for new pilots.
Although written for the UK market, any pilot progressing through the sport will find a lot to learn.
