Anyone have more details about it? In particular, was the glider equipped with transponder? This is not good rep for us, but could have been worse....

How does sun heat the air? by [email protected]
The sun shines down through the atmosphere, hits things on the ground, the things on the ground get hot, and then the hot things on the ground heat the air? Sun light passing through the air does not heat the air at all? Heats the air some but not much? If the air is transparent to solar energy,...

Fligth Time Calculator by [email protected]
Hi, every now and then, we all have this chore of updating the flight book and the pilot log book with these hard to calculate hours and minutes. So several years ago, I made a web page for that. But that was even cumbersome, so now I have made an Android app for it, minimizing the number of key...

Collinite #925 Fiberglass Wax by Nick Kennedy[_2_]
I came across a review in Sailing on this wax. Has anyone used it? The review gave it very high marks, but reading into the review they warned of working on too large of a area at once, which indicates to me it may be difficult to work with. It's $19.99 a bottle; quite a bit less than WX Block. Is...

Polar diagrams and L/D by Jim[_33_]
I sure need help here. As far as I understand polar diagrams the airspeed axis is for indicated airspeed, not true airspeed. This certainly makes sense. BUT, I have also come to understand that an estimate of L/D for a given airspeed can be obtained by dividing a given airspeed on the polar...
