Brian Cosgrove's clasic 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 NPPL Microlight examinations since the book was first published in the early days of the sport.Now the book has been redesigned and utilizes colour illustrations to help the reader unedrstand more clearly the principles of dlight, signals and meteorology. The text has been thoroughly revised for this eighth edition to bring current information to enthusiasts around the world. It also provides a real understanding and recognition of the factors that influence safe flight.Described by the British Microlight Aircraft Association (BMAA) as the 'father of microlighting', Brian Cosgrove was a former RAF meteorologist, a fanatical microlight enthusiast and, until his death in 2010, president of the BMAA. He was author of a number of other books including Pilot's weather and the world of weather.155 pages, softback.
