Accident databases by Bill Daniels
Can anyone post a link to a glider accident database. The BGA accident database seems to be unavailable at the link I had bookmarked last year. I am particularly interested in the DAeC or BGA databases. Bill Daniels

low fuselage trailer ramps by [email protected]
When my Crown trailer ramp is fully lowered my ASW-20 fuselage does not clear the dolly cradle. Furthermore the scissors jacks require excessive torque from the fully lowered position. Currently I roll the main wheel up a small wooden ramp to raise everything a few inches. I'm interested in other...

Another Cambridge 302 logger bug by [email protected]
Sorry if this is already well known, but it had me stumped for a week or so and I may have lost one flight log. I've looked around and I believe this is different than noted in this newsgroup previously, since this occurs with the latest Cambridge 302 firmware (2.6.3). Apparently there is a bug in...

Pawnee Part Needed by Roy Bourgeois
Is anybody aware of a source to replace the shoulder harness locking device (it allows the slack in the harness to be locked) on the Pawnee? We are uncertain but suspect that the device is used on other aircraft besides the Pawnee. TIA Roy A. Bourgeois Greater Boston Soaring Club

Interesting pattern technique by [email protected]
While attending an advanced x/c seminar last week I had the pleasure of riding in the back seat of a Nimbus 3DM, and the PIC used a landing pattern & technique I had not seen or heard of before, but I sure took note of. First think I noticed was that even though he'd been flying gliders since...

Becker 4404-1 Transponder Behaviour by Ian
Hi A question for those who fly with Becker 4401-1 transponders. Normally the "Reply Indicator" triangle on the display of our transponder flashes briefly when the unit is interrogated, but otherwise it remains off. Today I noticed today that it was displayed continuously. This was when I was at...

GPS antenna conflicts? by [email protected]
Does anyone have experience with mounting two "mouse" GPS antennas in close proximity of each other? Any interference issues? Specifically, I'm thinking along the lines of two Garmin 35s, or a Garmin 35 and a remote antenna for a Colibri, both within a few inches of each other under an instrument...
