Sky Gods for Hire in Cross Country issue 129 argued that flying guides could help hang glider and paraglider pilots skip weeks of do-it-yourself learning.

At the end of the 3,000 word article that looked at the systems around the world, from Spain’s authoritarian approach to South Africa’s realistic stance to northern Europe’s attitude of ‘they don’t exist’ it asked for comments.

Comments may be edited and published in the next issue of Cross Country.
