This is the FAA’s primary technical manual for the required aeronautical knowledge necessary to operate a glider. It is essential reading for applicants preparing for the exams for private, commercial, or flight instructor pilot certificates with a glider rating, as well as for currently certificated glider pilots who wish to improve their knowledge. Flight instructors will find this handbook a valuable training aid, since it includes detailed coverage of aeronautical decision making, components and systems, aerodynamics, flight instruments, performance limitations, ground operations, flight maneuvers, traffic patterns, emergencies, soaring weather, soaring techniques, and cross-country flight.

In addition, readers will find information on towing, human factors, and the Soaring Safety Foundation (SSF) Safety Advisory 00-1, “Glider Critical Assembly Procedures” in the Appendix, which covers ensuring aircraft airworthiness. Illustrated throughout with detailed, full-color drawings and photographs; includes comprehensive glossary and index.
