How to teach XC with lead/follow technique? by [email protected]
We are trying to help teach XC to our fellow club members. I've heard of the Lead/Follow technique with an experienced pilot showing a student how to get around a course. Before we try it, are there any suggestions on how to best do it? I've heard that if the leader is higher up or in a higher...

The owner's wife recently found the seatback but it's installation from the parts I received is unclear. (I think I got extra parts!) If you have an LS-3, I'd really appreciate a photo of what...

UA 246 by mic pilot
I posted this in another thread, but think this needs some new air. It seems like this incident took place near teddy intersection at approx. 7000 msl? That’s just a really bad place to fly if you’re not talking to ATC, with or without a transponder. Teddy is major point on the JVL8 arrival...

Not Really Aviation Related, But... by Dan Marotta
I often notice that when someone wants a private email reply, he includes an easily decrypted version of his email, e.g., john (dot) smith (at) gmail (dot) com.* I only need to look at the "From" field on the message as it's displayed in my email client (Thunderbird), to see the email address...

ADSB visibility with non certified GPS by [email protected]
The following quote comes from the Trig web page for their TN72 GPS. "Wherever ADS-B technology is used it is worth highlighting that most ADS-B In traffic receivers will only display aircraft traffic that generate a non-zero quality indicator, (also referred to as SIL 1). In contrast a zero...

Clearnav 2 and/or Cambridge 302 for sale by [email protected]
If anyone is interested let me know. The Clearnav II is presently mounted on a RAM mount. I either want to sell them as a package or the Clearnav II with wood stick grip by itself. If I can't sell them as a package i'll keep the 302 for now. Both came with a glider I recently purchased.

Solenoid valve by [email protected]
My Pegasus tail ballast bag sprung a leak last year. In the process of replacing it, I decided to also change the 12v electric solenoid valve as it was pretty corroded after years of use. The old valve had a 5/16 (.3125") orifice which drained the one gallon bag reasonably quickly. Unfortunately,...
