I'm going gliding courses,, is it safier or more danger than the regular aircraft. And what will I study in gliding course. I was so happy to find this — It depends on how you look at the "problem". . And maybe a better term to use here is a "sailplane", because all airplanes can be considered gliders, at some point or another. A sailplane can "glide" indefinitely (as long as there are thermals, ridge lift etc. ), by utilising its light weight with atmospheric conditions. A powered aircraft normally cannot. Its endurance is usually limited by the amount of fuel. When you run out of fuel (although you should never reach that point), you're going down, whether you like it or not. Yes, you can glide the airplane down safely, even with no engine power. But it is not designed to be flown that way. So safety should not really be the paramount factor in your decision, because both are safe. What you should be looking for is what attracts you more and how far do you want to go? Do you want to fly just as a hobby or do you seek a commercial career in aviation? Generally it is a good idea to learn how to fly a glider before you move on to a powered airplane. It's fun, and you learn some things PPL usually wouldn't teach you. Some gliding: If you want to know more about gliding, or what you'd be learning, an perfect source would be "Glider Flying Handbook", available freely on FAA's website. Here's the link:
Went winch Gliding (Dawn Till Dusk), this is the launch/takeoff, flight, approach and landing. I may upload a full video with some gliders launching from the. . .
