Updates and Reviews for Pocket Aviation ''A guide to paragliding''
Book Review from Mark Andrews “The best paragliding manual I have read:
...It appeared that Panayiotis had come up
with a good book that his countrymen could use as a learning and teaching
The author, former Greek
paragliding champion Panayiotis Kaniamos, has collaborated with Dennis Pagen
to produce this new English edition of this fantastic book.
written with clear illustrations, this 248 page book even manages to squeeze
in a little humour... one page is dedicated to helping you recognise your
signs of addiction, evident when you name your dog 'rotor' and you only
consider losing weight if it'd help you get into the middle of the
Cross Country Magazine

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 Aviation to me. Even with my limited knowledge of the
Greek language, I immediately could 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 his countrymen could use as a learning (and
When Panayiotis introduced the idea of an English translation of his book and a
companion CD, I was happy to see that he wished to expand on the reach of this
product through a different language and the widespread CD media. We jumped at
the chance to publish it and bring it to a wider audience. Panayiotis’unique
perspective and his extensive research combine to render this book one of the
best introduction book to the beautiful sport of paragliding.
I wish you all the best in your quest for adventure in the air. With safety in
mind and this book-CD set as a guide, you are sure to expand your horizons.
