2019 Hobbs 18M/Open Class Nats. Day 7 6/26/19 by [email protected]
Today we have a high pressure system a little to the north creating a subsidence inversion which will probably reduce the lift band somewhat. There is a 50/50 chance of cu and possibly bases as high as 13000 ft. It's also possible day will stay blue with best climbs no higher than 10000 to 12000...

ASW 20 Gear well full of dirt - Any improvements? by [email protected]
Landed out in a very soft dirt field during the Region 8 contest, and had so much dirt in my gear well and glider, that I spent the next 3 hours that evening vacuming and blowing it out. Still don't have it all out. The -19 and -20 gliders don't have the fully sealed gear box that the newer ships...

Flight review required? by Terry Pitts
This came up today on askacfi.com. Most of us have seen someone who used to fly but hasn't for years and decides to take up soaring. These people have no medical, no flight review, and no 90-day currency. They cannot fly whatever it is they used to fly, but with some - maybe a lot - of time and...

Hobbs 18M/Open Class Nats. Day 6 Tuesday, 6/25 by [email protected]
The dry line is now sitting on or near us so there is a good chance for showers in the task area later today. Good cu, but again, another chance of widespread areas preventing lift. The grid time is earlier and hopeful launch time 11:30 to get pilots back before potential weather. Primary is a...

Ventus rigging advice, please? by John McLaughlin
I've recently started flying a Ventus2. I can't rig the thing without a lot of struggle. The trouble is, there's a cover above the spars and you can't see anything once the first wing is in. I struggle to get the second wing to fit, never knowing whether it's a bit too high or a bit too low....

Trailer plans by Geoff Minors
Looks like the trailer for my Open Cirrus is falling apart from its trip across Canada!! I am thinking I should build a new trailer myself which I have no problem with. Are there any plans out there I can purchase or scrounge? Thinking of a clam type shell trailer. Thank for help. Geoffrey
