Learning theory is a body of principles advocated by psychologists and educators to explain how people acquire skills, knowledge, and attitudes. Various branches of learning theory are used in formal training programs to improve and accelerate the learning process.

  Gliding or soaring is a recreational activity and competitive air sport in which pilots fly unpowered aircraft known as gliders or sailplanes using naturally occurring currents of rising air in the atmosphere to remain airborne.. In a broader sense, this article covers how to enjoy flights with gliders, motorgliders, hanggliders and paragliders by understanding how to plan . THEORY OF GLIDER FLIGHT. In the Soaring Society rewrote the Joy Of Soaring originally written by Carle Conway. I was asked to assist in the rewriting. The following revision is part of what I recommended. It is a good Introduction to the Theory of Glider Flight. Bret Willat. WING, FUSELAGE AND TAIL.

As with all piloting licenses, to obtain your glider license you will also need to be familiar with the theory and essentials of flight, safety, navigation and FAA regulations.

If you start studying early, you will have basic knowledge in place and your flight instructor won’t need to spend valuable time remediating you on the core principals. This new addition to the FAA's handbook series is the first official book released by the FAA for the sole purpose of glider and sailplane instruction and knowledge.

Originally designed as a technical manual for glider pilots and students, this handbook also contains chapters of beneficial reference information for glider and powered-flight.
