Updating Avionics - How I Remember What's What! by John DeRosa OHM Ω http://aviation.derosaweb.net
Updating files/firmware on my avionics should be easy. Then why is it so hard? Heck, I am an electrical engineer. I have been around computers since high school (early 70's). I was in Information Technology for MANY years and still do this on a volunteer basis. I should be able to handle...

15 Hour Wonders by Bob Youngblood
The FAA has made it possible for glider plots with very limited time to acquire a CFIG rating with only 15 hours of total glider time. This is truly an accident waiting to happen, what could a glider pilot actually know with such limited time? What do you think?

Time for a new US Schempp-Hirth Rep? by [email protected]
Unfair to do this on a forum perhaps but I think it's that bad. Wondering if anyone else with an older SH model is feeling the same. I have not been able to get parts for my glider. I will not go into exactly what I have and have not done to make it happen because I think I've done more than what...

Golf Carts - gas or electric? by Tom[_21_]

AC-4 Russia newsgroup question by [email protected]
Yahoo is shutting down its newsgroups, of which there has been an active one for Russia owners. Has any of files and photos been moved somewhere else? Over time, I have placed a lot of photos and files that improve on the glider, and would be a pity if this information were lost.
