wave flight in kansas by Robert Holliday
Sunday was a good day for soaring. I was able to soar in clear air to 16,053 ft MSL for an altitude gain of over 13K near Hutchinson Ks. My question is did anyone else experience similar conditions in the flatlands?

Hi, This post is a bit off-topic, but it relates to the soaring goosenecks I sell. The require M10 x 1mm pitch nuts. I've been trying for months to find small, thin (3 mm or less) nuts for the goosenecks. All the US suppliers I've contacted can supply metric nuts with the right inner diameter...

Mylar seals installation by John W
I have some almost new mylar seals that are coming unstuck. Last year I had my wings at the shop. They got a new coat of wax and new mylars were installed. I'm guessing the process of waxing and the sticking of the mylars became somewhat merged, hence my current problem. So now I'm going to...

Anyone else notice this on today's visible satellite images/their ride home from work? I was looking at: http://wwwghcc.msfc.nasa.gov/GOES/goeseastconus.html and it seems like this started to form later in the day and covered a decent part of each of these states. I'm wondering if this wave...

First Estonian gliding casuality in 17 years by iPilot
In May 1-th - the day we got in to the EU - a Blanik broke in the middle of the flight. Possible reason - overspeed on spin exit. Possible cause for overspeed - not known yet. Pilot exited, but too low and parachute had no time for opening. Sad story with sad ending. We have one glider pilot...

Last season for BLIPS? by Stewart Kissel
I was reviewing the Dr Jack site and his subscription message, he sounds as if the workload means this may be the final season. He sent out the message for those like me who have become quite dependant on them to beware. Let's take advantage of them while they still exist.

Soaring's decline SSA club poll by Craig Freeman
In the result's from the SSA club poll fourty seven percent of responding club's said they did not want large numbers of new members. Maybe the word "large" caused clubs who would want some new members to answer in the negative. Maybe this indicates that there is no more room in half of the...

Kansas Wave Flight by Steve
Yes, we had a wave day in Kansas on Sunday. Only one person was able to connect and get any significant altitude. For those seriously interested in wave not generated by mountains, you might want to get all the data you can from near Hutchinson, Kansas on May 2, 2004, between about 1:30 PM CDST...
