About this item
For sale is an WW2 The Soaring Pilot By Ann and Lorne Welch and F.G. Irving 1st Edition. With its original dust cover and glider advertisement order form.SPORTING GLIDING has developed far since its simple beginnings in 1922. Now the World's records stand at 540 miles distance, 42,000 feet altitude, and 60 m.p.h. average speed. The gliders themselves are fine ex- amples of superb design and workman- ship, and the technique of using them a combination of individual initiative and scientific knowledge. The authors have taken a foremost part in the development of British glid- ing, and this book is the result of many years close co-operation in operating gliders, including expeditions all over Europe which they have made together. Its object is to discuss the modern glider and the technique of using it. They show how this fascinating sport still gives opportunities for great experiment and new ideas. That this is possible to-day at a price which the ordinary person can afford gives gliding a charm which is now irrevocably lost in those other sports which have reached stagnation point in their development. Ann Welch, one of the authors of this book, has already published, under the name A. C. Douglas, Cloud Reading for Pilots which is in its 3rd printing and Gliding and Advanced Soaring. This makes a very interesting read for ww2 glider enthusiast! This will be sent via Royal Mail 1st class signed for and dispatched within two working days.
