Diamant 16.5 Part Out... by [email protected]
A FFA Diamant 16.5 Sailplane, s/n 44, is being parted out. As a former owner, I spent a large amount of time and money to try and repair and restore the ship to new condition. Unfortunately, bonding problems in the right wing proved intractable, and the restoration was abandoned many years ago. ...

March and April Soaring...where? by vtcyclist
If one were to have some time for a month long road trip in March and/or April to tow their glider (DG-300) somewhere and fly, where would you suggest.. Florida, Texas and New Mexico come to mind, but I do not have soaring experience in those places. Especially that early in the year. Other...

Cockpit video recording -- the time is now. by Steve Koerner
I'm sick and tired of reading about glider crashes and never knowing what actually happened. We badly need to be able to learn from the misfortune of our soaring compadres. The obvious answer is that we all have a camera mounted over our right shoulder that will simultaneously monitor the scene...

Trailer for Schweizer 1-36 by Burt Compton - Marfa Gliders, west Texas
When Bob Ball (R.I.P) brought his his nice (never a club ship) Schweizer 1-36 to fly wave at Marfa, TX and sold it to me in 2004, he kept the home-built trailer as it was apparently a "universal" box trailer for his other sailplane. As I contemplate selling it I'm seeking an open or closed...

Glider rating to LSA rating by POPS
What does one need to do if going from a glider rating with no self-launch endorsement, into the LSA rating, and not get trapped at 10,000MSL. I could easily get the self-launch endorsement if necessary. I'm a bit confused and would love it if someone can map out a strategy to end up with the...

Ballekas Videos by Ouroboros
I went back to watch my favorite Balleka video recently and found it had been deleted, likely because of the music. After his death, I made it a point to download all of the videos from his channel. I've created a torrent with all of the videos I have. If anyone would like a backup of their own,...
