Since it was first published in 1991 Touching Cloudbase has been the world's best selling book on learning to fly paragliders (over 40,000 copies sold since the first edition was published) and is regarded by many as the essential reference book for all new paraglider pilots. It is recommended and used by virtually all paragliding schools and instructors in the UK, and many more worldwide, as a course reference book. Unlike other paragliding books, it is also aimed at the non-pilot who is interested in finding out more about the sport.
"Touching Cloudbase: The Complete Guide to Paragliding" by Ian Currer has always been a complete guide to paragliding, covering everything from the history of the sport to innovations and the future, from what is involved in your first day's training to flying cross-country or becoming an instructor.
The 5th edition of Touching Cloudbase covers all the way up to the BHPA Pilot (P) syllabus, as well as BHPA Elementary Pilot (EP) and BHPA Club Pilot (CP) syllabuses. The bias will still be on UK flying, but nearly all the content is relevant across the world.
As in previous editions, Touching Cloudbase 5th edition will include an valuable information section, containing data on national associations, weather sites and other useful info. It will also have much expanded sections on paramotoring (A.K.A. powered paragliding, PPG), as well as innovations like speed-flying and speed-riding, and more.
"Touching Cloudbase: The Complete Guide to Paragliding" is essential reading if you are doing a BHPA approved paragliding course at a BHPA registered school! This is the book you need to buy to help you pass your BHPA Paragliding Elementary Pilot (EP) and Club Pilot (CP) paragliding exams!
Touching Cloudbase is also highly recommended for paramotor pilots!
