The best paramotor reference book Brilliant piece of work. I particularly like that there are contributions from many specialists and each one of great detail and quality of writing.
An essential guide for the noviciate and an occasional refresher for the experienced. An excellent example of written clarity, directness and explanation. If you're new to PG or PPG then get this and delve through it. Get it and read it, before you go on a course. You'll be glad you did - and look so much better informed and prepared than many.
Easy to read and very instructive. There's a lot of information in a easy to read and understand format, a good book for your library and an introduction for when you purchase the powered paragliders bible.
