Soaring, the art and skill of outwitting gravity, is for anyone who has admired the beauty and silence of motorless flight. Of particular interest to young people is the fact that they can legally solo a sailplane at age.

Modernization was an important and guiding philosophy on how best to build the newly formed nation-state in post-independence Africa. Modernization encapsulated more than the matter of industrialization and infrastructure.

It also incorporated cultural efforts to bolster the psychology of the formerly colonized. The lift of a complete airplane is determined by the characteristics of all its components and their mutual interactions as discussed throughout the previous chapters of this book.

The total lift of the complete airplane determines its performance, especially with regard to takeoff, landing, maneuver, climb, stability.
