Section I: First Flight
Chapters 01-06 covers what to expect when first getting into the sport. A quick overview of the gear, what to look for in schools, and what you need to know for that first flight.
Section II: Spreading Wings
Once you set out on your own, this knowledge will help keep you safe and welcome in the national airspace system. Plus it helps expand into other areas such as formation flying, cross country and, most importantly, maintaining your gear.

Section IV: Theory
You’ll fly even without understanding aerodynamics but it helps. Same goes for the more thorough treatment of weather and motor dynamics. The history chapter is just plain interesting.
Section V: Choosing Gear
After learning to fly, pilots sometimes want to buy different gear. These chapters help make informed decisions, including what to buy for home building.
