Marfa Texas expanding operations by Burt Compton - Marfa Gliders, west Texas
TOWPILOT needed to fly and live in my guest cottage next to my home in town just 3 miles from Marfa Airport in far southwest Texas, near the Davis Mountains and Big Bend National Park. Marfa Airport elevation is near 5,000' so we enjoy a pleasant year-round climate. 3 runways at MRF airport, a...

Tragedy at Uvalde by Waveguru
This is copied from the SSA web site: As with all race days, the pilots gather in the tiedown area to describe the highs and lows of the task and enjoy a cold beverage with friends and the end of Day 3 began that same way. By 7 pm everyone was back except Steven Coggins flying JS-1 “DT”. With...

Garmin Aera 660 vs ifly 720 by [email protected]
So my Garmin 196 gave up the ghost and is not updatable anyway. So Im looking to replace it with one of the two above. One big question is (and I searched both manuals before asking this) do either of them give the current required glide ratio to a point? My 196 did and I had it on my custom field....

Colibri II *.hdr file software by M S
Apparently there is a difference between setting a task and making a declaration in a Colibri II. I can import a task easily enough from a *.cup file, and modify it on the logger. It leads me around the task as it should, bleeps at the turnpoints, and directs me to the next one. If however, I...

Colibri data recorder date error by [email protected]
I tried to post a recent flight to the OLC only to have it rejected due an improper date being associated with the flight. It showed as 1999 as the year and from what I have read and been told this has something to do with the Colibri GPS engine not being able to register the date from the GPS...

Strojnik motorglider by Wallace Berry
Hi, A friend who has had a few glider flights asked me about the Strojnik S-2a motorglider. Apparently, he has seen one for sale somewhere. I suspect this will not be a suitable ship for him. However, his questions made me realize that I have no real information about the ship, just some vague...

Pilatus B4? by Terry Pitts
I have periodically seen Pilatus B4s for sale. Mostly in the mid-teen price range. There was one in Germany a couple years ago for $5,500 w/o a trailer - THAT wasn't going to work! I have come to enjoy glider aerobatics. I live in Augusta, GA. If someone were to have a Pilatus they wanted to sell,...

Ventus C, 15m vs 17.6m by Mike N.
Just curious, how is the performance of the Ventus C with 17.6m tips installed versus standard 15m with good winglets? I have done some searching and seen some consensus that the 16.6m tips are typically not used much due to the performance degradation at high air speeds. But what about the 17.6...

Flarmview versus Flarmview 57 by [email protected]
I'm interested in purchasing a Flarmcore soon and I'm curious which of the displays would work best. I have a spare 57mm hole in the panel now, so the Flarmview 57 seems to be the simplest installation. I'm curious if having the extra buttons on the original Flarmview make this device easier to...
