thanks M&H Soaring by Dan[_6_]
I needed a small part for AS-W 20 and thought M&H just might have it. Sent an e-mail and got a very quick reply and sure enough they had what I needed. Monty sent it right out and I'm back in business. Great service, both Monty and Heinze are great guys. Thanks Dan Rihn AS-W 20 WO

Westerboer electronic total energy vario by kd6veb
Hi Gang The new Phoenix came without a working TE probe because they had hoped to design their own but designing TE probes is 90% magic and 10% science and they failed. So I needed to change the Tasman Vario with an electronic vario that could operate from the static and pitot lines and calculate...

Al Santilli was born on May 28, 1914. At 91, almost 92, he is still active, regularly flying his Libelle out of Moriarty, New Mexico. (He's been soaring since he was 16 in 1930.) I'm trying to find out if he is the oldest currently active soaring pilot in America. If anyone knows of an active pilot...
