The microlight aeroplane has brought flying within the reach of many. This updated handbook aims not only to prepare pilots for the PPL(A) Microlight examinations but also to teach them to fly safely and to develop understanding of meteorology, navigation, aerodynamics, and the legal dimension too.
Brian Cosgrove's classic introduction to the world of microlight flying has endeared itself to several generations of pilots. To read a 'Cossy' has been the advice given to candidates for the PPL(A) Microlight examinations since the book was first published in the early days of the sport. Now the book has been redesigned and utilizes color illustrations to help the reader understand more clearly the principles of flight, signals and meteorology. The text has been thoroughly revised to bring current information to enthusiasts around the world. It also provides a real understanding and recognition of the factors that influence safe flight.
Brian Cosgrove's expertise in meteorology comes from his days in the Royal Air Force and from his love for flying and gliding. He lives in England.
