LX5000 stuck in cruise mode by Alan D
Anyone have this issue - the cruise/climb switch on my LX5000 does not change the setting any more (vario stuck in cruise), the auto settings do not work. The switch itself is working so this has to be a software issue. Any ideas on how to fix it.

Insurance Options? by Jonathan St. Cloud
I know Costello Insurance Associates and LL Johns and associates insure gliders. Was looking for comments on if one is better or cheaper than the other and if there are other insurance companies that offer competitive rates?

The highly successful UK Junior XC program vs. USA's nonexistantJunior XC program. Why? by Sean Fidler
Some of you might be interested to know that the UK just held its 2015 Junior Nationals a few weeks ago. Nearly 70 juniors pilots (yes, SEVENTY) competed in the event. As an American, I nearly fell over in my chair when I saw the article (and photo of the grid). Back in the USA, the SSA doesn't...

Sparrowhawk handling by Hartley Falbaum[_2_]
Is the Sparrowhawk handling suitable for a low time glider pilot who flies infrequently? How is pitch and roll sensitivity compared to say, a Discus B? One of our club members seems to have a big problem staying in position on tow. He does just OK in a K21. I need to know how to help him or...

NEW Sporting Code rules by [email protected]

iGlide and iPad mini by Jonathan St. Cloud
Anyone flying with iGlide and an iPd mini? What are your thoughts, does the iPad mini work well in the cockpit? Are you happy with this combination, is the mini bright enough to see in the cockpit, does the battery last long enough, what mount do you use? Any comments would be helpful. Thanks

SH circuit breakers? by [email protected]
My D-2 has recently decided it would be interesting & exciting to blow the gear horn, even though the spoilers are locked (with gear up). If this were to happen while airborne, my only recourse would be to pull the U/C circuit breaker. SH has recently started using new little circuit breakers that...
