GPS Flight Recorder Calibration Time by Paul Remde
Hi Soaring Pilots, Calibration Time! The IGC requires that GPS flight recorders be calibrated every 5 years. Now is a good time to send yours in for calibration. Discounts are offered for calibrating multiple GPS flight recorders at the same time. I turn-around most units in 24 hours.

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...

Pitot/static leak issues when using a "squat switch" by [email protected]
Darryl, Ramy, Williams, et al After installing a squat switch (such as the Peregrine brand), did your plumbing pass a pitot/static leak test? I have heard gossip of the Peregrine switch having pitot/static leak issues. Is there another approved squat switch known not to leak?
