Minimum field size. by FZ[_2_]
I'm driving past the nice grass field. Looks big, but it is surrounded on all sides by the 80 ft high trees. What should be a minimum length of this field, for a modern glider to safely land there? How to calculate it?

Interference between instruments by JS[_5_]
Linking a couple of recent threads: Connecting multiple varios and how to change ASI markings.... I discovered the reason for a flight computer's inconsistent readings was the bezel on the ASI not being tight enough to seal. Snugging it up resulted in a more accurate ASI and flight...
