Higher Than Eagles

Right Stuff For Hang Glider Pilots
Erik Fair’s inimitable classic Right Stuff is a timeless collection of Erik’s (mostly) informative and (always) entertaining instructional columns, originally published in Hang Gliding Magazine. “Talking Downdrafts With The Pear People,” Erik’s story of a Superbowl Sunday misspent answering questions on hang gliding for wanderers-by at a shopping mall, is, all by itself, more than worth the price of admission. Beyond just entertainment though, there’s a wealth of useful information for advancing hang glider pilots, presented in an easily accessible style. Every pilot’s library should have one.
