This book provides a reference point for use in conjunction with aerobatic instruction. It aims to help provide an understanding of the important subjects that are essential for safe and successful aerobatic flying.
This is a masterly treatment of a subject neflected in British gliding for decades but which has drawn increasing attention in recent years. . . Beautifully presented and meticulous, it would be very hard to beat what is certain to become the bible of the unpowered aerobatics art. Even aerobatic aspirants who demand an engine up front as well as kinetic energy would benefit from digesting it. - PILOT
The authors have produced a volume which is set to become a standard reference work for the future. . . fulfills the needs of both the students and the instructor, and is written in an easy style with excellent diagrams and photographs throughout. - FLYER
It should be on every pilot's bookshelf, whether or not you are keen on aerobatics.The content is well structured and the layout is good . . . It's easy to read and concise; I liked the style of writing. The authors' enthusiasm comes through and you actually want to go flying. - SAILPLANE AND GLIDER . . . this is a book no self-respecting Fox pilot can afford to be without, and if the subject doesn't grab you, then the copious collection of pictures of just about every silent aerobatic mount in existence will surely speak to your soul. - SILENT FLIGHT
