RIP John Shelton, Pez D Spencer by [email protected]
I just learned John passed away on Sept 8th. He had been fighting brain cancer for several years. He was a good friend during my soaring days and we had a million laughs together. I will write more later as I know who most of the people he wrote about in Pez. He was one of a kind. Tom Hubbard VN

Replacing ELT, PLB with current tech. by Mike N.
I am looking to update my ELT and PLB. I have a fixed ELT on my glider, it's an early 2000's era, and I also have a similar era PLB that is supposed to strap to a parachute, but frankly it is somewhat bulky. What are the current generation PLB / ELT for gliding? I'd like to get a single compact...

Does everyone stick to the 18k limit for the cannula and 25k for the mask, or are these limits considered advisory only?

IGlide loses routes by [email protected]
I thought this problem had been fixed, but it’s back. All my saved routes disappear. There is never an issue with the log files, turnpoint files, or map files. But the routes must get written to someplace that is not stored. And every now and again, they are gone! Is there a fix for this?

Standard Cirrus 1973 (Grob) no water ballast by Ian Simmonds
Hi all I am now the owner of a lovely 1973 Grob built Standard Cirrus - a thing of beauty. What intrigues me is that the the glider has no water ballast in the wings and looks as if it came straight from the factory like this. No connector in the wing root and nothing in the cockpit to indicate...

Task Planning and Flight Review Software - alternative to SeeYou? by Papa3[_2_]
What are people using nowadays for task planning and flight review? I've had SeeYou since the beginning, but I'm finding the latest versions to be so bloated with extra features that it's becoming much less user friendly. Task and waypoint management in particular is becoming a PITA. My...
