Table of Contents

Foreword by Alvaro de Orleans-Borbón 

Imagine that you are walking through a large, dark and well known room – and that you do so with ease because you are familiar with its invisible contents.

Or that you are flying through the atmosphere, whose transparent air hides its invisible movements – again doing so with ease in normal, familiar conditions.

But now imagine yourself running through a dark room full of energetic, moving equipment, looking for treasures to catch on the run: after a few steps, hopefully before you hurt yourself, you realize you need a map and a lamp, to avoid the dangers and navigate towards the treasures.

This book reveals to you the invisible treasures of the atmosphere, explains its promises and its dangers and teaches you how to enjoy them.

Even if you never left your armchair, you will wonder at the hidden beauties and incredible energies of our sky and you will learn how to read its state and ride its magic carpets.

But, as the author tirelessly warns you at every new chapter of this marvellous book, do not enter this environment without thoroughly understanding it, or you may be severely punished –flying thousand miles without an engine, at Everest’s altitudes over unlandable deserts, is now possible but cannot be improvised – you need to fully comprehend the aerial phenomena, the flying equipment and, above all, yourself, your physiology and your psychology.

My personal flying experience barely allows me to fully appreciate how deeply, how passionately the author is sharing his wide, hard earned knowledge about flying gliders in extreme environments: Jean-Marie provides us with a “beautiful map and a strong lamp” to safely explore one of the last hidden jewels of our fantastic planet – for this gift not only the gliding community but every curious, nature loving person will be forever indebted to him. - Alvaro de Orleans-Borbón
