Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As far back as the twelfth century, people have loved to parachute. From Chinas umbrella and Leonardo da Vincis pyramid-shaped flying device to the first air-plane jump in 1912, the urge to leap and soar with the wind has long been a part of history. Parachuting has come a long way since its earliest days due to the advancement of technology, and, now, more people then ever are taking up this in-credible sport. With Powered Parachute Flying Handbook, you will learn what powered parachuting means today, the aerodynamics of flight, what types of engines are used in power parachuting, preflight checklists, basic flight maneuvers, and so much more.

Whether you are training for a powered parachute category rating test or are currently a certified power parachute pilot looking to expand your knowledge, Powered Parachute Flying Handbook is the book you need to make your flying ambitions a reality.

Synopsis:

From the FAA, the only handbook you need to learn to fly a powered parachute.
