Cambridge CPT 505 Variometer by John Foster
I'm in the process of building a new instrument panel in my glider and am at the point of hooking it all back up.

DG-1000 - confusing W&B information in the pilot's manual by India Four Two
My gliding club has a DG-1000S. We have an overly complex spreadsheet which we use to determine permissible cockpit weights and the number of tail weights required (0-12 Kg). Part of the complexity is that the spreadsheet has to allow for 18 m or 20 m wings, plus wet or dry configuration. Another...

Wanted urgently: A DAR-T that is prepared to help by Ross[_3_]
I have purchased a sailplane in the US and am struggling with German authorities to get it certified due to their requirements. The aircraft in question hasn't flown for 8 years and is not airworthy and I require a statement from a DAR-T saying just that. Is there anyone that can help me on this?

Fanny packs for baleout by [email protected]
I've started carrying my Inreach in a fanny pack. They are cheap, and if rotated so the pack lies between parachute straps, offer a comfortable way to keep safety equipment attached in the event of a baleout.
