Another First Glider Question by solo89
Let me first apoplogize for posting a first glider question. What the heck, there's not much soaring weather out there to distract us this time of year. A Ventus A is up for sale at a very attractive price in the local club. I currently have about an hour on my brand new ticket. I think the...

FLASH! U.S.A. Rules Committee to Address Rules Complexity? by SoarPoint
The U.S.A. Rules Committee are rumoured to be polishing off the details of a multi-prong program to address the much-ballyhooed topic of Rules simplification.

Proper stall recovery technique by Chris OCallaghan
Thought I would unearth this note as it appears apropos to several concurrent spinning threads... This was in response, primarily, to the notion that the proper recovery to a stall with dropping wing is to "lift" the lower wing with rudder concurrent with stick forward, leaving the...

Best time of year? by Wendy W.
I got a soaring certificate recently, good for one year. I live in Houston, so I'm wondering if there's a good time of year, as opposed to a bad one, to use it? I.e. are there times when the thermals are better, therefore more fun, etc? I've never done it before; done some hang-gliding and a lot...

Tow pilot killed, but reported as a glider crash! by Pete Zeugma
Having seen a couple of posts regarding 'tug aerobatics' while on tow, and 'spinning tug and glider while on tow,' this comes as a rather tragic and timley reminder.......... http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/lincolnshire/3449683.stm How many of us fly with our hand on the bung all through the...

Spinning the SZD 50-3 by Tim Shea
I love to spin. It's exciting. I took aerobatic training with Wayne Handley and was taught spin recoveries by him. I have direct experience spinning the Puchacz at Minden. This is what I remember from my experience. Your mileage may vary. With friends (usually lighter than me) in the front, I spun...

Soaring simulations by Mike Lindsay
Is anyone using SFS 4 during these long winter unflyable days? Our former CFI recommended it as partial substitute. And does anyone know of any source of non German scenery? Or non German user groups come to that? -- Mike Lindsay

Glider Toy by Stephen Yaldwyn
Today while shopping, I came across and purchased a toy Ford f150 truck and what appears to be a Schweizer 1-21 (The toy car is marked, but not the toy glider) on a trailer. The glider can be "rigged" and appears to be reasonably to scale. The whole lot is made by RealToy and is part of the Action...

SeeYou 2.51 vs. StrePla 2.4 by Bill Daniels
I have searched the archives for opinions on these flight planners/analyzers. There's not too much current data. They have progressed a lot in the last year. I need some opinions and comparisons to make a choice. Which do you use and why? Bill Daniels
