Updates and Reviews for Pocket Aviation ''A guide to paragliding''


Book Review from Mark Andrews “The best paragliding manual I have read: http://marksparaglidingpages.com/index.php?action=news&newsid=148

...It appeared that Panayiotis had come up with a good book that his countrymen could use as a learning and teaching tool.
Dennis Pagen

The author, former Greek paragliding champion Panayiotis Kaniamos, has collaborated with Dennis Pagen to produce this new English edition of this fantastic book.
Simply 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 weight-range...

I am thinking to translate your book in Mongolian language as handbook, because your book has nice illustrations, and very informative.

I am a paragliding instructor living in Turkey and I am interested in translating the book into Turkish.

Please protect the book, due to bad handling here by post.

I am the editor of a paragliding club magazine www.online-brochures.net and I was hoping that you might let me publish extracts of your book in the magazine.

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 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 teaching) tool.
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.

Dear pilot,
