What have we learned from all this? by Bob Youngblood

Looking for advice on a refinish. I don't have Bob Ireland's excellent contacts in the sailplane business so I'm working at a disadvantage. He owns one of the few remaining (total of 7) flyable examples. I've read about people bundling sailplanes up to get them repainted in South America but...

The Yellow Triangle by Nicholas Kennedy
On many German gliders on the ASI is a yellow triangle. This Yelloe Triangle on my ASw 20 and my LS3a is the factory recommended approach airspeed. This speed is 49 knots. This has bothered me for a long time now, I think the factory did alot of pilots a disservice by putting this, to me anyway,...

Airports that have oxygen by Doug Levy
Last year while motor gliding the western states I had trouble finding airports that can fill my oxygen bottle. I did get fills at Ely, Minden, and Inyokern. Do you know of places that can help out a visiting pilot?

I am trying to locate 3 of the 2.2kg Schempp-Hirth Discus lead ballast plates. Rather unlikely someone is going to have the set and wanting to sell but I figured it's worth a shot. I drilled automotive lead ballast to 10mm but underestimated the limited space up in the nose of the Discus. Turns...

Who wants to try VR? by [email protected]

Importing unregistered ASK-21 by ProfJ
OK, idle fantasies on a winter day here - if I was to buy an ASK-21 in Australia that had never been registered there (see https://www.pickles.com.au/trucks/item/-/details/2014-Alexander-Schleicher-ASK-21-Mi-Tandem-Seat-Glider/1020118632) how painful would it be to register it in the US?
