Prepare to Fly

Paragliding Tips I Wish I'd Learned Sooner


"very, very good indeed and ridiculously cheap"
"Not just recommended... essential!"

Skywings magazine, October 2012.

Written in an informal, personal style, this book offers the novice paraglider pilot an extensive collection of tips on preparation, equipment selection and organisation that they'd otherwise have to pick up by trial and error over months or years.

Now in a considerably expanded and updated second edition, it includes new stuff I wish I'd learned sooner about preparing to fly XC and in competitions!

This book will help you avoid expensive mistakes, and will hence most likely more than pay for itself in the long run.

If you've completed Elementary Pilot and are on the way to Club Pilot, or if you're a Club Pilot building your hours, this book will help.

The first edition is now also available in Chinese, translated by Qiu Boling.
