MD or VA trailer/glider hangars? by Sailplane Driver
Hi, I am moving to Northern Virginia and am having trouble tracking down storage space that would fit a glider and be a reasonable cost. Any ideas? Doesn't have to be with a club but that would be ideal. Thanks for the help, Chris

Looking for new glider by Bill Daniels
I've sold my old glider and now I'm in the market for a new one. This time I'm going the single-place route. There seems to be a sweet spot in the price/performance curve when looking at the older open class gliders like the Open Cirrus, Jantar 2 (A or B), LAK 12 etc... I haven't ruled out 15...
