Book - Paragliding Training Manual
Originally written by Mike Meier, and first published in 1991, the Training Manual has sold more than ten thousand copies and has been a standard reference text for new paraglider pilots. Paragliding instructor Rob McKenzie of High Adventure Hang Gliding and Paragliding has characterized it as, “Probably about the simplest layout of the concepts of gliding flight ever written. A terrific reference book and training supplement for the beginner through intermediate pilot.”
While the Training Manual has been updated over the years to reflect changes in the sport, this new edition represents a major expansion in the scope and content of the manual. Wills Wing has brought on board paraglider pilots Mark Stucky and Tim Meehan (USHGA art director) to create a complete revision with an entirely new look, additional subject matter and new illustrations.
New chapters now cover towing, competition basics, and an introduction to paramotoring. The focus is on presenting technical subject matter in a manner that is easy for the average pilot to comprehend without the need for complex theory or equations.
The companion DVD allows the pilot to see the specific techniques described in the manual actually being demonstrated, and to review the demonstrations as often as desired to enhance the learning process. The introductory section of the DVD is also a great way to introduce your friends and family to the great sport of paragliding.
