My OLC daily score for the USA seems to be stuck on 22 Apr. I can find later flights by looking at specific regions of the US, but not the main US page. I have tried going through the SSA's website link to the OLC and get the same result. Is it just me, or are others having this problem, and if...

Mylar replacement by Bojack J4
How often should the mylar be redone on a horizontal stab/elevator? The glider is always stored indoors in its trailer,and everything looks fine with the factory installed tapes, etc. There is sometimes a quiet air sound that changes pitch with elevator deflection especially when cold.

Converting the early 150 model to 180 hp is now available through Mike Horton of Lubbock, Texas. The STC allows for the o320 to be replace with the o360 A1A. The late Jeff Cloud had the arrangement in his tow plane and it was very good. No it is not a 235, nor should it be, but it is a very...
