Looking for new glider by Bill Daniels
I've sold my old glider and now I'm in the market for a new one. This time I'm going the single-place route. There seems to be a sweet spot in the price/performance curve when looking at the older open class gliders like the Open Cirrus, Jantar 2 (A or B), LAK 12 etc... I haven't ruled out 15...

Hi, My first post to r.a.s. so go easy. :) I've been looking through the Manual (about 15 pages) and cannot find anything on the moment arms of the seats to use to determine the W&B. The Manual has an envelope diagram, but how do I do the calculations without the arms? Thanks,

Where are the CFIG's? by Michael
The advertisement for CFIG's recently posted, and the discussion it spawned, made me realize something. I have yet to see a soaring club that had enough CFIG's. I'm sure they're out there, but I bet they're not the norm. Some have waiting lists to join if you lack a glider rating. Some have...

Class C Ceiling by Mzsoar
As a relatively new pilot I want to ask a question about airspace. In Southern California we have a lot of class C airspace. The ceiling is generally 4000 ft. AGL for class C, right. Someone mentioned to me that to legally fly over class C you must have a transponder. If not, you must be at...

Oskar Vierling BSW-Variometer power connections by Mark James Boyd
I just got one of these antique varios from New Zealand, no less! Don't worry, I got an excellent price ;) It looks like there are only four connections to hook up. "A" is probably ram air. "S" is probably static. Then there are two power wires, unmarked (uh oh). The tape on the wires says...

Drag of LS3 compared LS3a. by Peter Warburton
Dick Johnson found that the LS3a he tested, had a higher sink rate over the whole polar, relative to the LS3. He found the 'a' version to have a 6mm thicker airfoil. Was this just a specific aircraft difference, or are all LS3a's systematically inferior to the LS3's?
