Welch, Ann,
The Story of Gliding.
London, John Murray, (1980). 2nd ed. VG in VG DJ. Glding today is a high-technology sport. Without an engine gliders have flown 1,000 miles in a day and average speeds of. 100 m.p.h., more than is possible in many light airplanes. The modern sailplane is made of glass and carbon fiber, has a wing of up to 22 meters span, and is finished to almost perfect smoothness." But it was not always like this. The pioneers flew with the classic materials of bamboo and cotton sheeting, and other followers used space and plywood, or metal, inthe search for ever better performance. In the early days, gliders flew from hills, like hang gliders of today, soaring in the rising air over the ridge. Then in the late 1920 came the first tentative experiments with clouds and the discovery of thermals. This book describes the pioneer efforts of the past and the great flights to achieve the present records. Author Welch began flying aeroplanes in 1914 and glideres in 1937. In 1961 she gained the British National Women's Goal Record and in 1934 was awarded the Lithenthal Medal.
