FAA GLIDER FLYING HANDBOOK (FAA-H-8083-13) Published July 2003.
230 8.5 by 11 inch large format pages, with hundreds of full-color
Remarks by Bob Wander:
This is the long-awaited official FAA document on flying gliders.
It is as up-to-date as it can be.
Written by glider people for glider people
(the FAA contracted the book to Jeppesen-Sanderson,
which in turn contracted the writing and editing out
to a number of American glider experts).
I am pleased to have written a number of chapters in this book,
and to have edited a number of other chapters for content and for writing
The result of all this labor by many talented people is a
comprehensive, modern, beautifully illustrated, easy-to-use book
for American glider pilots of all levels.
Jeppesen-Sanderson’s professional illustrators provided hundreds of
illustrations, all in full color.
Summary: FAA Glider Flying Handbook is an authoritative, attractive, and
comprehensive study guide for American glider pilots of all levels of
experience. Price $34.00 plus shipping.
