Part 91 Commercial Glider Rides to be Outlawed? by Vaughn
The following is from an AOPA post and I have no further information yet. I assume that they are talking about eliminating 135.1(5) which allows nonstop sightseeing flights within a 25-mile radius. This is bread & butter for a lot of soaring schools and would be a serious blow to our sport. ...

LS-4A Turbulator tape question by Joe Lacour
I'm sanding on my LS-4A wings and was wondering several things. Does properly placed ZZ Tape noticeably reduce the high speed drag of an LS-4A? Probably does. Does anyone know the proper location of ZZ Tape on the wings? If it is in the right spot and works, I'll sand around it. If it is not in...

Does everyone teach this way? by Dancebert
