Wurtsboro Soaring Article - say what? by Mike[_28_]
Got this in my e-mail today. I guess any publicity is better than none but I got a kick out of some of the writers misunderstandings/ misconceptions. http://tarrytown.patch.com/articles/taking-flight-a-soaring-time-in-wurtsboro

The McGurk Effect by sisu1a
More on the subject of the limitations of human physiology... Just ran across this great little segment of a BBC show called Horizon, on The McGurk Effect and thought it went nicely with the counting test and optical effects, but thought it deserved it's own thread. Watch your ears lie, despite...

When the whole sky takes a pause... by danlj
I sorta hate to interrupt the conversations by asking a question about actual weather, but here we are... Last fall, I posted a question on "where's the next thermal" that got helpful responses. Somewhere in this group, a pilot made the observation that on some days, the thermals vanish...

San Francisco 2010 Photo by Ferox gold fashion
Giants give City by the Bay its long-awaited title ARLINGTON, Texas Buster Posey caught the final strike, started to rush the mound, then stopped and turned toward the dugout. The rookie catcher wasn't quite sure what to do or where to go. Hard to blame him, either. It's not as if the San...

Flarm and stealth by John Cochrane[_2_]
As the US gets ready for the arrival of flarm, a big question on many US pilot's minds is, what about stealth mode? From an armchair piloting point of view, it seems that seeing gliders in a several km range, with climb rates attached, could be a major competitive issue. With this in mind,...

Commercial Rating for Towing Gliders not needed? in US by chris
Some of the recent contests I've attended in the US had trouble getting tow pilots and enough towplanes. One issue was the controversial issue of do towpilots need commercial ratings to tow at a contest. I did just read an article that I wanted to share. I'm a bit behind on my reading but the Feb...

Where do main pin holes come from? by Bob Kuykendall
Where do those big holes in the spars of composite gliders come from? You know, the ones where they put the bushings that you insert the main pins through? Somebody with a big drill drills them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FZ3rISscO2I Thanks, Bob K.

L-NAV problem by Ron Gleason
The L-NAV in my new to me ASW20 is not functioning properly. The unit will shut off and re-boot randomly. It does not happen every flight, sometimes will happen only once and then stop and other times it just continues to shut off and re-boot. I am about to pull the unit and replace the internal...

PowerFLARM by Greg Arnold[_2_]
Toward the bottom of this page: http://www.gliderpilot.org/FlarmExternalDisplays is a picture of a SeeYou screen displaying Flarm data. I don't understand the situation involving the glider that is displayed as "Enemy." If it is 466m higher than "my" glider, why is it a threat?

See(?) And Avoid by sisu1a
Yesterday at Urs's FLARM presentation at the PASCO seminar, he demonstrated some of the the fallibility of the human eye/visual recognition system with a few videos, which were really ....eye opening. Hopefully a recorded (and edited, since it almost spiraled into a ras debate a few times...)...

Mt Washington Cloudscape HD video by T8
No two second peeks of scantily clad hard bodies in this one... sorry. Just a couple minutes of spectacular stacked lennies. Doing it again, I'd have chosen a different camera position -- due to crab angle in 60 kts of wind the straight ahead view misses a lot. Youtube won't allow me to post...

PowerFlarm response to transponders by Mark
I've seen the nice demo/video of the FLARM response to the mid-air. I've probably missed it, but is there a detailed description of how the PowerFlarm responds to GA aircraft with transponders? I have a PCAS and am curious how similar the two devices behave/indicate in this...
