Fifty Ways to Fly Better is the new book of hang gliding, paragliding and free flight techniques from world championship paraglider pilot Bruce Goldsmith and friends.

Published by Cross Country magazine it's a synthesis of all Bruce's knowledge from over 25 years of flying hang gliders and paragliders, competing at the highest level and designing wings for all pilots from beginner to world champion.

Red Bull X-Alps winner Chrigel Maurer called it "essential reading for all pilots."

Jocky Sanderson, SIV guru and producer of the classic Security in Flight 2 paragliding film said it's, "Packed with in-depth flying advice from the pilots who really know".

Whether you are a paraglider pilot who is just starting out, or a time-served hang glider pilot who has seen it all, then there is something in here for you.

From learning to fly cross country, to understanding which way to turn in a thermal, to flying 100km through the Alps, to the latest in rear-riser control technique, Fifty Ways is an excellent, up-to-date guide to the art, science and craft of flying cross country.
