“A Sky Full of Heat”—New Book by World Champion Sebastian Kawa

Coming soon—a book by World Champion sailplane pilot Sebastian Kawa! Kawa has compiled an extraordinary record of competition success, including a win in the 15 meter class at this year's WGC 2012 in Uvalde. He is currently number two in the IGC rankings.

From the official website:

"Eight time World Champion and his secrets of success: passion, knowledge and experience. The most extreme side of the extreme sports. Sebastian talks about sailing and flying, his first flights and first competitions, wins and loses, gliders and avionics, safety and taking necessary risk.

How to plan cross country flights, how to use thermals, where to look for them, how to win competitions and tons of other tips from the world’s best."

    I believe Zbigniew Nieradka won 18m; Kawa 15m in a Diana 2… Still looking forward to reading the book.
