Which 18m FES sailplane to buy? by [email protected]
I'm considering the purchase of an 18m FES equipped sailplane, and would like to hear thoughts and opinions about the various options available. I'm seeking a cross country machine with long legs and a highly reliable sustainer. An 18m FES sailplane should fit that requirement nicely. I'm a...

Repairing a Schanz compass by Mark Williams
I have a Schanz compass that isn't behaving as a compass should. It's almost impossible to get a bearing no matter how much I fiddle with the pitch and bank settings. I've removed it from the glider to give it some TLC. There's no liquid inside the compass housing (should there be) and the compass...

Typical glider service lives? by [email protected]
I noticed the SZD-55 has a service life of only 3,000 hrs with a possible 1,500 hr extension. Is this typical of other modern ships like the Discus, Ventus, LS, DG series etc??

Contest Wait list by [email protected]
As a fairly new contest pilot but one that enjoys the entire sport. It is interesting to me that Nephi OLC/XC Camp set for next June has a wait list and the Sr's is already has 39 pilots registered - yet Mifflin and Elmira have less then 10 total. I have looked at the pilot survey and have...

Solar Farm Development Near Glider Port - Problem? by OHM Ω http://aviation.derosaweb.net
My club just got word that a solar farm is being proposed to be built about 1 mile directly off the west end of our runway 9-27. The zoning board meeting is tomorrow which I plan on attending. Aside from this re-use of good farm land (and a close land out spot) is there a downside to having a...

What is the best point to jack up a Cobra Trailer ? by [email protected]
I changed a wheel in my Cobra trailer with the glider inside. I located the Jack just under the corner between the bottom and side wall, next to the fender. Looked flimsy, but held fine, no bending of wall or edge. Was I lucky or is this the right place to do it ? Dan

2019 XC & Jr Development Camps by [email protected]
Looking at the SSA on-line calendar I do not see any XC or Jr development camps scheduled for 2019. To grow our XC ranks and our Jr's we really need to have these type of events more often - like twice a year (East & West). I'm thinking of organizing a camp for 2019 that would be geared to...

Pilot certificate required? by Jim[_33_]
I have read many FARs that describe the requirements for obtaining a pilot certificate but I have not found an FAR that states a pilot certificate is required in order to fly an aircraft - without passengers and not for compensation or hire. 14 CFR 61.3 details the requirements for a "required...
