I am trying to locate 3 of the 2.2kg Schempp-Hirth Discus lead ballast plates. Rather unlikely someone is going to have the set and wanting to sell but I figured it's worth a shot. I drilled automotive lead ballast to 10mm but underestimated the limited space up in the nose of the Discus. Turns...

SeeYou by Waveguru
As soon as my subscription runs out, the program starts acting up. This really ****es me off. I paid for the program and the fact that they sabotage it to get you to purchase the upgrade is very disappointing. If I don't want the "improvements", the program that I paid for should still work. In my...

An early-season accident in Germany yesterday (Feb. 27, 2021), with a happy outcome: an ASK-21 ends up hanging among trees close to the Burg Feuerstein Airfield (Bayern); no injuries to the pilot reported. I like the way the rope is used to secure the pilot by recovery. Watch the...

Another way to replacing instrument panels by ben soaring

Airports that have oxygen by Doug Levy
Last year while motor gliding the western states I had trouble finding airports that can fill my oxygen bottle. I did get fills at Ely, Minden, and Inyokern. Do you know of places that can help out a visiting pilot?
