Preface to pocket aviation by Dennis Pagen
I first met Panayiotis Kaniamos in 1998 on one of my numerous trips to
Greece. I was immediately struck by his love of
paragliding and his determination to share his extensive knowledge of the
sport with his fellow pilots. He soon showed the Greek version of Pocket

see the quality of the book and the professionalism of the layout and
illustrations. It appeared that Panayiotis had come up with a good book that
