The Parachute and its Pilot is the singular resource for canopy flight information. Whether you are a new jumper looking for further your education or an expert canopy pilot seeking tips on advancing your techniques, this book has something for you.

The book is jam-packed with information compiled over 20 years of skydiving experience, and offers technical yet very straight-forward explanations of ram air parachute flight. Written by one of the industry's leading parachute designers, The Parachute and its Pilot is a must-have handbook for every skydiver.

As the title suggests, there is a bi-fold focus of subject matter. The first part is about parachutes and flight techniques, everything right from the beginning up through competition approaches. The second part is about the psychology of flight; from fear response and ego issues through visualization.

*In the words of Dan Poynter, Author of The Parachute Manual: *
"This is a much-needed, milestone book written by the parachute industry's foremost canopy designer. Brian Germain combines the exceptional knowledge of canopy design with a unique ability to explain how to squeeze maximum performance out of any ram-air canopy. Whether you are shopping for a canopy, are a competitive jumper pursuing maximum performance, or are simply studying what makes the ram-air canopy fly, Brian will lead you in the right direction with expertise, eloquence and care."

Chapters include Flight Modes, Flying in Turbulence, Landing, High Speed Approaches and Landings, Fear and Learning, Teaching Flight, and more.
Softbound, 176 pages, 8.5 x 11 inches.
