Certificating the SparrowHawk by Finbar
Operating the SparrowHawk under Part 103 has never made any sense to me, for several reasons: there are operating restrictions (prior permission required to fly into an airport with a control tower, etc.); there's a common "that's not a real airplane" response you get from airports and tow...

Automatic Parachutes by John DeRosa Sky Soaring Chicago IL

Why use TE probes at all? by Robert
wouldn't it be better NOT to use TE probes at all? they only increase the drag! Why not use electronic compesation and/or i.e. a bohli vario instead of TE probes?

wave flight in kansas by Robert Holliday
Sunday was a good day for soaring. I was able to soar in clear air to 16,053 ft MSL for an altitude gain of over 13K near Hutchinson Ks. My question is did anyone else experience similar conditions in the flatlands?
