Flight review required? by Terry Pitts
This came up today on askacfi.com. Most of us have seen someone who used to fly but hasn't for years and decides to take up soaring. These people have no medical, no flight review, and no 90-day currency. They cannot fly whatever it is they used to fly, but with some - maybe a lot - of time and...

Undershoot Vs. Overshoot airport landing accidents by [email protected]
I always assumed that there are more overshoot airport accidents than undershoot ones. That is mainly due to our general knowledge that it's better to be too high than not high enough. Am I correct here ? Dan

Pre Buy Inspection at El Tiro Gliderport by [email protected]

Thermalling Primary Gliders by [email protected]
I'm interested to know if primary gliders were capable of soaring flights or if they only flew short hops. The SG 38, for example, has a sink rate of 1.3 m/s so in theory it's possible. I'd be very interested to hear of any stories about soaring one of these gliders.
