Private airport or small field for landout? by Charles Ethridge
Hi all. I'm a former cfi-i/mei and commercial glider pilot, but I've never gone cross-country in my PW-5 glider. Training up for it though. A question: If you are in an area where the fields are small, but there are several private airfields around, which should be your priority? Seems to me...

Seat cushion works great for long drives by George Haeh
I've been using the pink-blue seat cushion and cover in my glider for many years and it works just fine. But a dear friend 3000 km away is in her last weeks and my rear can get sore driving 400; so, I put the cushion in my car for the trip. It's a fact of life that we spend more time in cars than...
