Kai Gertsen Instruction Manual & Memoirs

When Kai Gertsen passed away last year, he left a treasure of written stories as well as his common sense, humor-riddled, instructional manuals on Spinning, Cross-Country Soaring and Off-Airport Landings. Now, these life and soaring stories and the manuals are combined in a new book titled “Desperate to Fly,” published by BTLink Publishing. Following his wish, all profits from the book will be donated to the U.S. JUNIOR Soaring Team.
