Default A book for Beginners and Inprovers to Pattern Flying

Hot off the press!

Yesterday evening, someone bought the 1,000 th copy sold of my book from Amazon Germany. My book has now been bought in 10 countries around the world despite it being available only in English. Sales through Amazon are:

530 paperbacks and
327 Kindles,

I have personally sold 143 paperbacks making up the total of 1,000 books sold.

This has surpassed my wildest expectations. However, it also means that 1,000 folk think enough of it to buy it!

A recent purchaser of my book sent me the following feedback and he's happy for me to share it, so here it is!

Comment

I have been slowly digesting your book, not been putting anything into practise as have not had a chance to fly, I have checked out my Wot4 to ensure it’s ready to go mind so will using that for now.

I really like the easy way you have written it, for beginners but easy to get on with, having spent so many years with gliders I have got into a rut a little and although I thought I knew how to trim models this has reminded me of things I have not done for years but what is more a better understanding as to why, strange I know but I believe those who taught me back then were very good at explaining to me at the time but I more or less did it parrot fashion without really thinking about it but just recognising some traits. I am really enjoying it, just feel I must have become complacent over the years and with lack of time some models fell by the wayside before I had a chance to get to their full potential as they were not as good as I hoped. I feel I hadn't made the best use of my time unfortunately, due to more snatching a flight here and there and getting easily lead astray with new toys! That stops now and the New Year’s resolution is to make the most of what I have got and (one for the wife) sell on those I don’t used before getting another.

Your book has done so much more for me! 😂 focus being one important thing.

Thank you for that.
